I had a similar experience with some high end 32's. Fit nice and comfy in the store and and home but on the hill I could handle like 2 or 3 runs before I had to go in and loosen them up to relieve the pain. I heat molded the liner, I tried riding them loose, tried to mod the liner but nothing helped. They just didn't work for me. If you had good experiences with another brand I would say go back to that. Seems like for me Northwaves have consistently felt great, even during the break in period they did not cause any pain or discomfort what so ever.
