I had them on for 10 minutes and I had to take them off and rent a pair.

Although, I technically used them any chance I can return them for a size 10? Or will they really pack out...she also put something at the heel to try to give me more room.

If anything I might go to a different ski barn and try to return them. Then go to another ski barn and get another pair.
How tight did you tie them? My boots kill if I crank them tight, but if I leave them loose they're fine. I've been on them about 6 days so far and they're getting much better.

Most people wear boots that are too big...
