Hey, I just bought some restricted Hails and I love them. Been riding twice in them and have no complaints apart from one thing. The sole of my right foot (I'm goofy) is KILLING me! The arch feels really sore and I start to feel numbness in my foot after a little while. I think it might be because I'm riding on a really shitty rental right now and the bindings really hurt my feet.
I'm surprised you feel pressure points in your ankles, they feel really forgiving to me. I tried on the DC Judge with Boa and it had really bad pressure points on my left ankle, something that I used to get a lot with ski boots. The Hail felt really nice though. I tried on both the ion and the Hail and the Hail just felt a little better...
My arches were killing me in my Burton hail's. Bought blue super feet insoles and now they are great.
