So I called the shop and they suggested heat molding the boots. Oddly enough, they did not use the toe cap or extra socks that I read about on here so I hope that is not a problem.

Anyway, heat molding helped but it's still a bit snug. They then recommended putting a small heel spacer under the insole. Apparently raising the sole will bring the toes back a bit.

Any thoughts on all of this? I'm sorry if this is a stupid question!
How are they standing straight up. If they fit well while standing and leaning forward, I"d stick with it.And walk around too.

Heel lifts will bring your toes back just a bit
