Nike Zoom Force hurts my ankle

I have a pair of Nike Zoom Force, yesterday was the 2nd time I rode in them.
They're definitely more comfortable than the 1st time, I think they're starting to pack out a bit and mold to my feet.
My right foot (the rear foot) feels awesome~
But after a few runs, my left foot started to go numb in my toes. Then by mid day, the spots where the ankle bulges in the liner starts to really hurt.
Are the bulges cutting the blood flow from my ankle to my toes? What can I do to fix this problem?

Did you get them heat molded? I am also experiencing the same problem with my toes as well

No, I didn't get them heat molded. What's heat mold?

This is quite interesting, have had no problems whatsoever. Except my left lower leg being sore in a weird spot, but that is probably the highbacks fault.

Extended periods of numbness can lead to permanent nerve damage. I suggest custom insoles and heat molding your boots. The liner of your boots is made out of a material that can be put in an over or heated up at your local shop then molded to your foot and lower shins.

That's because the boots are garbage. Waaay too soft. Good jib boots.

I'm not sure if the Zoom Force 1's have the internal tightening system (FlyWire), but if they do I think you might be tightening it too much. I ride a set of Kaiju's and if I tighten the FlyWire down too much they will cause pain.

dooooood, I have the exact same problem as you regarding the ankle area but on my right foot. I think it is the bulge where the tightening system for the inner bootie is wedged between the shell of the boot and my foot. I think this is a design flaw on this particular boot because the loop for the laces that is pressing against me is causing the pain. This is a great forum to know that I'm not the only one suffering from this problem
