Got new boots!! (small feeted)

Hi guys,

I finally found a place where they have any men's boots size under 9.

I normally wear 7 regular shoes and its still a bit bigger than my feet, (anything under 7 is extremely small so I just wear 7)

this sport place had size 7 burton moto,

my toes were touching the front, but somehow hill side had minimal spaces.

I just bought the boots anyways

and even with snowboarding socks, there is still space inside.

would wearing another pair of socks help?

i curse my small feet.

I am 5'9 and have as small feet as girls.

You can wear an extra pair of socks or put in inserts to try and fill the void.

Have you ever tried boots made for women? This is a serious question, so don't take offence. You may find this is a better option than buying a boot which only somewhat fits.

space on brand new boots is no bueno. the Moto's will pack out easily 1/2 a size and you're feet will swim in them.

I ride Burton boots and get them so my toes are not comfy in the toe box. after 5 days, they fit.

for reference, I wear a 12-12.5 shoe and ride in an 11 Ruler

no, when i wear it with 2 pairs of socks, its tight in there,

but the thing is if I force myself to lift up my heel purposely,

there is a little space under my heel.

Is this okay?

Are you talking about heel lift? If so, then completely ignore my first post. For heel lift, you can buy j-bars or something to that effect that will help remedy the situation. This will become more important as the boots pack out.

go to local shop....tell them you have some heel lift and ask if they can hook you up with some j-bars.....

best pair of boots I ever had were some 32 Prions, I could even drive my stick shift in them. They were not even close to my normal size and after talking to folks about sizing of 32's im convinced I had some girls boots lol. They fit so good cause I have skinny feet with insane arches. they got stolen out my car one night
