Question boa boots help

hey i just got some 32 Niu Boa boots and i was trying them out.
and i noticed that in order for you to get the part over the top
of your foot securely tightened, you have to super tighten the
part around your lower calf. this makes it extremely uncomfortable.
does anyone know a good way to fix this? ive tried putting pens
and stuff between the tongue of the boot while tightening and
removing them after i feel the boots fits alright but that doesnt
work super well. any ideas?

Have you tried flexing forward while you tighten the boots? If you have, and you're still uncomfortable, then they just might not be for you.

They're 32's they have a space between the liners tongue and the shells tongue its gay and the company sucks because of this.

Anyways if you want it tighter around the ankle area flex forward towards your knee, if you want it tighter over the arch flex backwards while in the boot.
