Shift knob Boot is looser than my ex girlfriend

So I have the 2012 manual 2.0 and I want to replace the shift knob with a sparco one but.. as you know, the stock shift knob has the little neck for the boot to wrap around, and an aftermarket one does not. I’ve read about using zip ties to squeeze it on there but I feel like that 1, looks trashy and 2 is bad for the leather. Help

i kinda like it loose... like an old mg.
somebody put a plastic sleeve around the shaft, under the boot, to keep it up against the knob.

not really, it was in a post here about aftermarket shift knobs. pretty sure it was just a plastic straw or something simple like that.

I like it loose too. The seam on the leather lines up with my fingers when I shift with the leather on the up. Me no likey.

I should add that going to the newer style OE shift knob the finger position is different and they never get near the boot.

I know how to fix this issue.
