Will boots that are a half size too small effect riding?

My toes have no wiggle room they are almost curling but I know it's only a half size too small...they don't hurt me so should I keep them or go look for new boots? for the record i have k2 boas from a couple years back.

get new boots for sure. They don't hurt now, but they will.

If they're new, they'll probably pack out a bit and actually end up being a good size for you. I'd give 'em a shot if your feet don't actually hurt.

Get new boots. Your toes should not be curled at all, just touching the ends.

Two years ago I bought driver x's which fited perfect in store, just ideal. After few runs and hikes boots packed out and I ended with boots two big for me. This year I bought new Driver x's of course smaller.

I would give them a try.

if your toes are almost curling, you'll be in trouble eventually. They might pack out a little bit, or you could try having them molded, but they sound awfully small. IMO boots are the most important thing, because if your feet hurt, you can't ride well andyou won't have fun. Get rid of these ASAP (eBay or craigslist) and grab a newpair that fits you better.
