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.
Nikes, you say? I had a pair of Nikes last season that were always giving me foot pain and numb feet. I think they are sucky boots, this may be your problem. My pair were not as chunky as my Northwave boots. I don't think they support my feet nearly as well as the Northwaves. My feet were also getting cold all the time in the Nikes. After trying to break them in for about 20 days I gave up and went back to the Northwaves. The foot pain and cold feet went away.
I hate Nike boots, very bad experience.
