Got Burton Ruler boots. How long does it take for them to break in?
I love the way the Burton rulers lace up so I got a pair. Problem was after wearing them around the house for an hour or so my right toes began to numb up. Called the place where I bought them from to see if they had 1/2 size bigger, they were out of stock. But talked to the guy that sold me the boots and he insisted on wearing them on the slopes and everything should be fine. Can anyone put their .02 cents in on this one. Is he right?

Hey I have some Burton Boxers and had the same issue with my big toes. I rode on the slopes with them recently and had to unlace my left boot every 20 min. because of the pain/numbness, while my right foot is completely fine. I took out the stock insoles and it helped relieve pressure off the big toes. So I was going to buy some $50 custom thinner insoles but I decided to take them in to get the liners heat molded for free and will let you know how it turns out.
Ive got a set of rulers too, and they took for fucking ever to pack out. Where them around the house whenever you can, get them heat moulded, and just ride them. If it's still bad, get them heat moulded again, but use "toe cups", the guys at the shop will know what you're talking about.

i dont think your toes should be numbing up at all regardless of whether or not they're broken in. just my 2 cents.

When breaking in boots your feet are going to be numb, sore, throbbing, and if anything else, absolutely KILLING you. When they pack out and are broken in, they will fit like a dream! If your boots arn't killing you the first day of wearing them, you bought the wrong size and will be a waste of money.
