Why do my legs itch when I wear boots or even high socks or tights?

I can't figure this out, but whenever I wear boots my legs and calves itch like crazy for several days afterward. It doesn't matter if it's winter or summer, if I've shaved or not, showered or not, moisturized or not. I've tried everything and nothing stops the itching.
