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.
Can you elaborate on the discomfort? Were your toes getting curled up?Specific pressure point on your foot? If it is a general "tightness" I think the boots will pack out - can you wear the boot comfortably (minus some tightness) in the house for an hour or so?
