Yeah. Just forgive yourself for buying them and go get a pair of K2 UFO's with Boa. I bet they will fit like a glove. My 340 dollar Burton Hails made my feet go numb and were ditched after 1 season. So glad I found these gems.
My last boots were DCs with Boa and the Boa gave me some problems with not being able to control the tightness. My ankle would always be really snug while it would be loose around my foot.
My new boots are some Nikes with laces that have been making my feet numb just wearing them around.
I really don't think it is a problem with the boots because I had the same problem with some Burtons with their speed laces.
