Boot Help!

So I bought a sweet pair of Nike Zoom Force Ones for $85 but I got them a half a size smaller than my normal shoes. Everything felt fine toes barely touching end and no heel life. At the store it was really tight but I'm like to my self, "I LOVE TIGHT" (Yes that is what he said). So I walk out of the store with my Boots get home wear them about an hour and a half and find out my feet are gone numb. So I am in a bit of a predicament, should I go heat mold them at my Local Board Shop and see if it fixes my numbness or return them and get a bigger pair someplace else for $250 (cause' that was the biggest size the store had). Help me on this?

Heat mold them. I thought mine fit well and heat molded them and they packed out a little more than i would've liked.

Bump.

PS. My Toes are going numb on the top part where the laces are. I tried loosening them and didn't really help. Also I was considering to buy insoles because stock insoles will always suck. So what should I do? Heat Mold, Wear them and see what happens, get insoles, or just return them and find a different boot? Also I need a recommendation on a good insole.

Does the store you bought them at have a boot fitter? If they do try asking him and see what he (or she) thinks. If it took that long for your feet to go numb it might be a slight pinch somewhere so maybe heat molding them would fix it. As for insoles Superfeet, I love mine.

Since you use superfeet what colour do you use? It looks like red is the made for snowsports, but it looks like they but a bunch jargon to up their specs and raise the price.

I actually have the green superfeet in my ZF1s. The only difference between the green and red is the red has the outlast on the bottom to help keep your feet warm. In all reality the sole of the ZF1's already have an outlast layer if you pull your liner out you'll see it, so id just get the green ones unless your feet just get super cold. If you have flatter feet you might want to consider the light blue ones as there is a little less arch support in those.

I use the blues. If you have fairly normal arches I would go for those.

Went to my local board shop yesterday and asked to get them heat molded. They told me they don't recommend heat molding them to fix the problem and told me to just board with them on or suffer through the numbness a little more and they will naturally mold to your feet. Did what they said and guess what?...It worked. As for insoles go, I just went for the Green Superfeets cause my liner already has Outlast so why would I need an Outlast footbed.
