Vans Encore Boots - thoughts?

I've had them for a year, I hate em. Every time I go boarding I cant wait to get out of them, They just hurt!
I had them heat moulded, didnt do the trick.

Anyone else had this problem?

are you lacing them up really tight or leaving them loose on the bottom? stock insole?

try some aftermarket insoles, you can go as cheap as superfeet or as expensive as full custom orthotics

I feel your pain man, I have ridden in them for 3 years now and this past season they made my feet kill. Even after the first run I could feel my feet starting to ache. I think the problem is that the insoles packed out. The reason I think this is because for the first two seasons in them I didnt do a lot of terrain park and what I did do was pretty mellow, but this past season I was all about the park and the boots didnt absorb any of impact on landing. I was considering buying some cheap aftermarket insoles to save the boots because personally I love the flex, overall response, and boa system of the boots, as the season draws near I am getting very tempted to buy new boots all together. Hope this helped!
