Thumbs down Fixing pressure point/pain

I got some new boots this season. I got a pair of last year's Nike Vapen in 9.5. They were easily the most comfortable boots I tried on in store and probably the most comfortable boots I have ever worn.

There is one problem. They bruise my ankle bone on my left (lead) foot. They were fine the first few days I rode them, then I took a trip and rode for like 20 hours in 2 days. I could barely get down the mountain the third day and had to trade boots with my brother who was wearing my old boots.

After like 2 weeks off, I can get down the mountain without too much pain. it only really hurts when I skate or get off the chairlift.

Anybody have any suggestions or ideas on how to fix this pressure I am getting on my ankle outside of new boots?

Could sand down some of the inner liner yourself, or have a boot fitter do it for you.

Would take it to a boot fitter if you are uncomfortable working on them yourself.

I'll give it a look myself, I guess.

I had the same issue with my zf1. Fixed the problem by simply moving the tongue of the liner over so that it doesn't overlap and cause a pressure point
