New boots tight near the top of the toe

I have a new pair of boots and the heel area is fine. I've worn them for 3-4 hrs and the toe area on the top is still "tight."

Should i expect it to pack out any more? Should I send it back? What's the criteria for the "right" fit?

My big toe reaches the other end of the boot somewhat but it has to go through a lot of "squish" with the toe-padding from above.

If you've only worn them 3-4 hours I would say you should expect them to pack out more, especially if you haven't been riding in them, just wearing them to break them in. My last boots took atleast a full week of riding to pack out to the point where they were perfect.

When the fuck did we get ice cream?
