Do you have a wide foot. I found several brands that were just way to narrow. This sounds a little like the toe box is to narrow kinda crushing your foot causing it to go numb as opposed to being to short.

Have you all ready done that?

They are heat mold able kind. I have not done that. I figured walking on treadmill would warm them up.

Kicking a tire seems to be exactly what I need to do. Lol.

I would get them heat molded after making sure that they aren't too narrow. Other than that, it will take a little riding to break them in.

I've read mixed results about heat molding.

I guess I could as a last resort, after a couple more walks.

The good thing is there are no other fitting issues with these boots. I had boa so tight my entire leg fell a sleep, but no pinch points or uncomfortable spots. Hopining it stays that way once I get on the board.

Timmy Tard FTW!

No shit.... I put those boots on and kicked a support beam in my garage several times with my toes. Instant packing action....

I haven't gone on another walk yet, but I wore them around the house for a couple hours and they're getting there.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I honestly was not going to do that, but I put them on in my garage, actually a fully finished garage that's my gym. I was sitting on my weight bench and after strapping the first boot on looked up and that beam was just staring at me. So I strapped down and went over and kicked it a few times.

It's not uncommon for one foot to be a little bigger than the other. Every pair of boots I've ever owned I've had the issue with fitting smaller in the right foot toes.
