Need quick advice - comfy Burton Hails seem to be numbing my feet
I just bought brand new Burton Hails from 2007 a few weeks ago. With the 30 day return policy, I have until this Saturday to return them, so I don't have much time to make a decision. I went to a professional "shop" where they measured me to be a 9 snowboard boot size. I have a 9.5 shoe, but they said that I want be snug, so a 9 is the way to go.
I took everyone's advice and went with these boots because they seemed to be the most comfortable. When I put my foot in, it feels like the boot was molded around my foot. My toes just touch the front of the boot without being crammed. The heel doesn't move much, etc. My foot doesn't move much. After trying on these boots again the other day at home, I was watching TV and left the boots on for a while (just being lazy). After about 20 mins to a half hour, the boots were numbing my feet or at least my feet felt the circulation wasn't so good or the boots might be tight. I tried the same walking around and same effect after 20 minutes. They don't feel too tight when I first put them on so I don't know what to make of this. Is this normal?
I am tempted to buy barely used (2-3 times) boots online for cheap because I am worried that I am going to spend too much money on boots that turn out not to fit right.
