I paused the Blu-Ray as Han and Rey walk up the steps to enter Maz's place and noticed what looks like a zipper or cloth expansion area on the back of Han's boots. Comments?

I don't know...based on those photos, I'm not convinced. Tall riding boots like these usually have a strip of leather (usually 3/4"-1" wide) sewn up the back of the boot to cover the seam on the back of the boot shaft.

That looks like it might be what we're seeing there.

Possibly. The tonal difference accentuates rather than covers whatever is back there. I've seen strips of elastic cloth on riding boots in that location to aid donning and doffing the boots.
