No boots fit! Help!

Can't find any boots that fit. Shop recommends buying a boot and having them heat mold the intuition liner to make it fit.

I thought i had two boots in mind but after trying them on again, they either too big or way too small.

Anyone else have this problem? size 11, toes bunched up or curled, size 12 and I could probably pull my foot out of the boot fully laced, strapped in.

what do?

1. Get your feet measured.
2. Try on more boots.
3. Try an 11.5?

When you tried on the 12's were they loose in the foot or around your ankle. I had some loose spots around my ankles and some hot spots and went to surefoot while i was in colorado. They put some custom orthodics and pads around my ankles and i have never had problems since.

they were too big , everywhere. except toe box. my toes touch even with 12's.
too big in the middle of the foot, and I could probably lift me heel up a few inches too.

I tried 11-11.5's on that were saloman factions, felt ok but toes barely touched, lean forward not at all. Heard this isn't a good fit.
Even these, I could pull my heel up a bit, but the tops were almost too tight.

I've tried on about 25 different boots, I've exhausted what is sold in this area.

do you have long toes and narrow ankles? Thats what I have and K2 boa boots seem to fit me best. In most other brands I am an 11 or 12 but with k2 boa the 10.5 fits me perfect and I could even squeeze into a 10 if needed.
