When I first got mine I wore them around the apartment for a few days...it'll annoy the crap outta your gf, but at least your feet won't be in pain on the hill.

they are kinda hurting my toes a bit right now, are they the wrong size or will they break in? Cause i dont want to keep wearing them if they wont break in, i could return them. The thing is i have to go up a whole size cause these boots are size 12 and they dont come in 12.5s and i dont think i need a whole size bigger.

Do your toes touch the end of the boot? Do they touch if you bend your knees?

when i'm standing straight up all of my toes touch and its kinda uncomfortable when i bend my knees the toes on my left foot dont touch but my pinky toe on my right foot touches the side curve of the boot. They felt fine in the store but are starting to hurt a bit now.

Pain is a bad thing, especially with boots.

To me they sound a bit small, but only you can really tell. The liner should break in to an extent, but if they are pretty painful now, I wouldn't count on them being much more comfortable later.

If the pain continues, I'd replace them tbh. If your feet aren't happy, you aren't happy.

or if you really like the boots, whats one toe on each foot? break out the clippers.

I had the same problem with my boots when i got them, but i didn't have a choice with mine since 15 was the biggest boot i could find. I just wore mine around my house for a week, randomly dropping into lunges and squats to try and stretch them.

they fit now
