Pressure points in boot

When people mention pressure points in your boot, would they be on the top of your foot or the bottom of your foot? I only ask because I used a pair of rental boots today that were causing me so much pain on the bottom of my feet, I had to stop after an hour and a half of boarding (waste of my f***ing money). Would that be the pressure points people are talking about?

Pressure points could be anywhere. Your boot was probably tied too tight.

I felt as if my boot was too loose. My heel was raising up a lot.

You could have weak / high arches or something but I doubt it. If your heel was coming up while riding, that's more than likely the problem. A well fitting boot is the most important thing in this sport. Try on a bunch at your local shop when you are ready to buy.

I've never had arch problems, so I doubt that's the problem too. I'm actually going this weekend to try on boots and I'll most likely end up buying them the following weekend.
