Default boots and factory insoles

i just got the burton moto boots. (speed zone lacing system)
when i wear them with the factory insoles in them, in about 20 mins my foot will go numb.
so i took out the factory insole and now they feel great.
Can i ride without the insole?
also i have the imprint 2 inner boot instead of the imprint 1 insole it came with.
the boot is a size 9 and the insole is a size 8.

Why did you buy a boot without trying it on first? And also, I don't reccomend riding without the insert because your feet will HURT after only a little riding.

Try some superfeet. Sounds like your boots are too small though.

too small? in width?
it's just everyone around here are not helpful with fitting boots.
it always feel that you HAVE to buy something.
if i keep the laces loose it seems to fix the circulation.
is it fine to ride with loose laces? and just have the bindings hold you in?
with every boot i always get a numb foot.
IT SUCKS!! than it freezes. and there goes my day

There are a few boots that fit a bit wider then others not sure where your actual issues are but a boot fitter is probably your best bet if you can not find boots that fit right on your own. Find a store that has a boot fitter if you can. If you describe the issue a bit better then you might get a few hints in the right direction from some others on here.

Would not suggest leaving your boot laces loose and tightening down on your bindings.

If you are near a shop (outdoor or ski/board) bring your boots in and try out some superfeet footbeds. If you have a high arch, look for the greens. If you can, leave the boots on for what it usually takes for you to lose circulation. You might also look in to getting a custom footbed done. Essentially, superfeet puts your foot in a more neutral position by supporting the heel. This in turn supports your arch and pulls your toes back. Also feels way way better after you get used to them. For a time I had to have superfeet in every pair of boots/shoes I had because they work so well.

How did you heat mold them? I just want to make sure that you did it correctly becasue if you don't do it right, things can become more prone to breaking/tearing.

Please don't tell me you put your boots in the oven....
