the tongue of my burton boot puts uncomfortable painful pressure on the top of my left foot. Do you know if there's anythign I can do to change how it fits? I tied that part of the boot a little looser, and it helped a little, but i feel like I lost a little bit of control in doing that.
read that next time you buy boots, incase you didnt this time.
and with the superfeet; with my experience i noticed it raised my foot a bit allowing a little bit of a more 'snug' fit. so in your case, not sure if you want your fit to become more snug since the top of your foot is already feeling some pressure.
(i think it might just be the difference in boot design and your foot.)
the problem isn't the pain, but it actually cuts off the circulation, so my toes were going completely numb after about an hour. it is slightly better without the bindings tightened down, but not enough, so it definitely is the boot. It's just weird because my left foot is smaller than my right foot since i had a cast on it years ago. maybe i'll try a thinner sock too.
so i've been messing around with the boots, and what i've noticed is that when you lean forward in them, putting pressure forwards, the tongue where it bends, puts pressure on the top of the foot. Then I also noticed that if you squeeze the sides of the boot together it relieves the pressure. so basically the tongue doesn't match the contour of the arch of the top of my foot.
any ideas on how to fix that? can I mold them in anyway? hair drier or something?
ditch the burtons!! worst boots ever. made the 3 small toes on my foot go numb everytime.
Whats your sock situation like? hopefully your not wearing little ankle socks??! try wearing some nylon dress socks. the super thin ones that are taller than your boot . give you some more room in there.
