Shoes chafing my ankles

I have new shoes, and they feel great during my rides, but they are chafing the middle of the bony part of my ankle (lateral side). I seem to have developed a 20mm scab there but haven’t noticed any blood on my socks. I don’t feel any of this during my rides (max so far just an hour).

Any tips? I’m contemplating a combination of treatment and pre-ride Chamois Butt’s there.

I’d get new shoes.

I had a pair of DMT R1 shoes that fit a little high on my ankle which caused some chaffing. I took them to a cobbler who modified the shoe to perfection.
