Did you try loosening your liner laces?

Im new to this and read somewhere about buying much smaller boots.
Im wearing Motto 8s at the moment and find them to be too tight at times.
I wear 7.5 for shoes.
Is this common?
I cant see me putting my feet in anything smaller than a 7.5 :P

I just bought the Burton Hails and have been wearing them around the house and have started to get the pain on the outer part of my sole also. I had the same pain in some ride boots I tried on and my old pair of Burton Freestyles. With my old Freestyles the pain would eventually go away while riding, but it seemed that every day started out with that pain. I used to think it was just my foot not being used to boots since I only get to ride about 10-20 days. I am now starting to think something about Burton boots might not be the boot for me.

A couple things.
Heat mold, and custom insoles.
If you get pain in the arch area I would say you need more arch support. Also you may be over tightening your ankle strap. Make sure the boots you buy fit properly in your bindings, esp in the heel cup. if you have lots-o-slop in the heel cup area you'll have to crank the bindings down super tight, thus forcing the curvature of you arch down and possibly causing pressure points in other areas, all leading to pain.

My pain is on the outer sole. If it where the inside of my foot it would be at the rear of my arch. There my toes are comfy at the end and no heal lift. Everything else is great except for the outer foot.

I have just loosed my liners to just barely tight and no change. I have not tried insoles.

I simply took more control over the tightening of my liner and laces. I'm used to cranking my liner tight in my other boots. With the Hails, I did it slightly looser than normal. Still tight, but not the tightest like I used to. With my outer laces, I kept the top foot area fairly loose and did the ankle area (right before the cuff) less than tight. For the cuff, I did the first set of hooks just tight. For the remaining hooks, I did them as tight as I could. I get no heel lift and this solved my ankle/top of foot pain.
This is exactly what I do. I have last years restricted hails. I would also suggest to always get new boots heat molded if they can be. it will decrease the break in period, and in some cases completely eliminate it.

I am having brutal pain on the top of my foot. Have any of you determined a cure for this? Cheers.
