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!
