Ditching the burton hails
 
Hey Gang. Rode a new pair of Burton Hails last winter and the top of my foot would go numb no matter how I laced the boots. I understand these may be more of a park boot? I don't spend alot of time in the park. Any suggestions on what could possibly be a more comfortable boot? I now realize I will have to wear them for at least an hour at home before commiting them to the snow. Any suggestions is much appreciated. Kind of disappointing as the Hails were not cheap.

Go to a store and try on as many boots as you can. What's comfortable for me, may cause pain for you. That is actually the exact scenario in this situation. I have Hails and they are extremely comfortable for me. I don't go into the park either, but they do a decent enough job in the NE.

I just went & tried on a million pairs about 2 weeks ago.
I tried on 3 different pairs of these & they were awesome each time.

If you come across these funny lookin' moccasins, try them on.

I myself just spend about 1.5 hrs in the local board shop trying on boots. Mainly Burton and Ride. I rode Burton Motos last year, which are a soft boot, but they were half off late in the season and I was rocking really old used GNU's. Anyways I tried on the Burton Ion's, Imperials, Ruler and Ambush. I also tried on the Ride RFL's, Triads, Hi-phys, and for me without a shadow of any doubt the RFL's were the boot for me. Going from a Moto to an RFL is going to be a huge change, but I am looking forward to it. In the end you really need to spend some time and try them on. And hopefully the store you pick has an awesome staff!

I had the same issue with uncomfortable boots in the past. Just like everyone else, I went to my local shop and tried on every pair I could. I also spent about 2 hrs in the shop watching videos with the boots on, and walking around. The guys were really cool and in the end i also did the heat molding to get that little push for a bit more room where I needed it.

Burton never fit me well. I have a wide flat foot. Did you buy these on-line? Sounds like they are deffinately to small or tight.

I liked my Vans, now sporting K2's and they are also comfortable. I did try on 32's but can't recall how they hit but many members seem to rave about the 32's brand.

Head to a store and kill a few hours trying on boots & buy them there. Don't go home and order them on-line !!!!!
