Welcome to the club! I just bought the same boots but US9. I have 275 MP feet, and this is 9.5 recommended. This is harsh! But I believe that heat mold is the solution. Moreover, my wife have it too, but women's design and she got size as described in size chart - 255 MP is women's 9 for her foot. But she got a beautiful blue nails for her big toes anyway.

What is your size in MP?

I second this. First what I've tried was the removing of insole. I put my foot in and voi la! The lenght is definitely good! It follows that heat mold will help with insoles inserted. This is correlated with

this table do not contradict to the size chart in the Focus Boa web-page - scroll it to the bottom.

I think mold necessarily will help you, if we say about 8 US W.

Interesting.

So you think I will gain, about the amount of space that my insole detracts?

Of course yes. You said that is all right with the length. Bottom part of the liner almost 6 mm thick, and over your big toes the liner has the same thickness. It can be molded to the 2 mm, so you have a 8 mm gap. It is bloody huge gap.

Toe caps are necessarily if the problem in toes area. But problem can be with dorsum where blood vessels are. In this case heat mold will help you more easily. You can do it first with two pairs of sox, than try with toe caps.

You can make toe caps by yourself.

I just went and sent them back. I don't think it's going to help that much.. Could be wrong though. I am often wrong. I just don't think it's normal for my toes to go numb and first half of my foot, right out of the box, not even laced.
