Still tight, but not the tightest like I used to. With my outer laces, I kept the top foot area fairly loose and did the ankle area (right before the cuff) less than tight. For the cuff, I did the first set of hooks just tight. For the remaining hooks, I did them as tight as I could. I get no heel lift and this solved my ankle/top of foot pain.
This is exactly what I do. I have last years restricted hails. I would also suggest to always get new boots heat molded if they can be. it will decrease the break in period, and in some cases completely eliminate it.
