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.

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.
