Question Numb toes in new boots.

I just bought a pair of the 32 Focus. My foot measures 8.5. I went and bought a 8 for some reason. They seem to fit nice. My big toes is just barely touching the end of the boot.. After like 5 minutes though my toes start to lose circulation. I'm hoping i just need to break them in?

Also, it's a bitch to get my foot in and out of the boot..

Yes, but they go numb even when unlaced all the way. Would half a size up, make a difference? I'm trying to pack them out, but i don't know how long it takes, and if it will even work..

I have the same boots. Your best bet is probably to have them heat moulded by a shop using the toe cap, this should give you some room to wiggle your toes. These boots are tight to get in and out of due to the inner lacing system being attached to the heel of the boot, but this is what makes them hold your heel down so well. Just make sure you undo the inner lace all the way before even trying to get in or out of them.

A thinner insole may work aswell but the stock insoles in these boots are really good, you would probably be replacing them with worse ones. But if it fixes your prob you may have to live with that.

So, I should just stick with these boots? Or would you recommend getting half a size bigger? I don't even tighten the boots and I'm still feeling numbness. Will the heat molding really work?

BTW, Thanks a lot for your help.

I assumed you had worn them and were stuck with them. If you can exchange them for a bigger pair definately go for it.
They are an awesome boot by the way.

Yeah man, i really like them. They seem like really great boots.

Would half a size bigger suffice? Or should i go for a whole size?
