Default My foot moves in my boot

Last year I got a pair of Niro boots size 11 used them for the year my foot would sometimes move in them so this year I got a pair of vans size 10.5 my toes are just touching but my foot is still sliding forward in the boot when I'm riding could this be fixed by getting good footbeds?

when you kick your heels into the back of the boot and all strapped in your toes should barely touch the front of the boot. are you properly strapped in? what kind of socks are you wearing?

a thicker footbed might help, but I would also suggest trying tongue pads. these help secure the heel by adding volume to the boot/shoe above your instep. a fit oriented or large department shoe store would likely be able to give you some or sell you some for very cheap. a full service shoe repair will likely have a much longer tongue pad that is intended for boots. either way it may help, if you can only find tongue pads for shoes, get at least three for each foot so you can play with lining them up the tongue of the boot, or possibly layer them up 2 pads thick.

to try the tongue pad only use part of the sticky back at first to mess with positioning it.

hope that helps

A smaller boot. If you can move your foot back and forth there's to much room.
