Nikkeeeyyyy.

Bought some Nike zoom force 1, literary threw cash at the guys because they were so damn expensive, but i decided not to cheap out on my next boot so yeah. Im size 9.5 in Nike sneakers and its a nice fit so i tried on 9.5 size boot. Damn were they ever tight, but not so much that i would be in pain. Wondering if i get heat molded will they run just a tinny bit bigger, how much they would pack out and if i went with the right size. Now i know that they need to break in but they are so damn tight they make me want to hammer them to expand. Can you make a boot bigger? If im screwed ill pickup size 10 but that size gave me loads of room in the toe part while 9.5 is almost too close to crushing my toes. Like its huge pressure but i can stand it. They are touching the end of the boot quite a bit. Other then that they feel comfy and nice for my narrow feet.

Nikes just don't fit you. Nice.

Nike does not recommend heat molding. Its doable, but it's a significantly better fit if you don't.

Go try on some Salomon's and be happier. Buying expensive boots does not guarantee a good boot.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Try an aftermarket footbed. Superfeet makes great beds and have been in the game for years. Green if you have a high arch, blue if you have a regular arch. The stock footbeds in the Nikes are flat with just a little arch bump on the inside. Nikes also tend to pack out between 1/4 to 1/2 of a boot size.

That's the thing, my store carries only forum, Burton, Nike, vans, and 32. tried everyone and Nikes fit best, but they are SO tight but just in my toes. That's it. Heel hold is sick and no pressure points. Tried on ruler from Burton and they were super comfy but my toes were swimming. Too much room and size lover didn't fit.
Fit(from best to worst):
-nike
-burton
-vans
worst fit was 32, my feet aren't wide and my ankle isn't beast. Sorry guys but i cant buy anything online without trying. Fuck Salomon.
EDIT: i can try a size higher or burton rulers or Nike vapen. Thats all they carry mind you i wore these for about 10 mins and i would describe the fit to be snug comfy but kind of tight. If they pack out 1/2 size they will be prefect. How do they normally pack?

Yep, if you have narrow feet, do like Nivek said and go get some Salomon's. I won't even bother trying on any other boots these days. Just tired of being disappointed. Very, very few snowboarding boots are made for narrow feet.

Well damn... They fit my feet. I don't know what to say but the pressure is only onto of my toes, around my foot is perfect plus nobody carries Salomon gear here. Well they do but then i would have to get a refund and disappoint guys at source when i spent 3 hours trying boots on and they were so great. I like nikes but they are super tight. Should i try Salomon? then i screwed.

Seriously try the footbed first. A proper footbed will have your toes sitting farther back in the boot relieving some of that pressure. Combine that with the fact that the boots will pack out and you will have more room. If your toes didn't touch the end of the boot in the 10 they will pack out to a sloppy boot after a few weeks of riding.
That is a great boot that will last you a long time if you take care of it.

I don't have the money and it seems like the 9.5 would not pack out that much or enough? What am i looking at in terms of these packing out, half a size? 1/4?
