Sounds like you may have had the same issue. I ride about once a week, twice at the most so I doubt I'd wear them often enough for them to pack out. My toes feel kind of cramped- just a bit curled so my foot isn't flat. I know from being a distance runner that when a persons feet get hot over the day (swell slightly with increased blood pressure), you need a little room for them to breath.
Everywhere I've looked so far, including Trasworld, say that for new snowboard boots you toes should 'just touch the end of the boot'. Definitely not the case here.
Without half-sizes at this range, I might just have to wear the 14s. I'll see how they fit in comparison on Tuesday, unless they arrive earlier.
