Thirtytwo

Just got a brand new pair of boots and tried them out last night (thirtytwos). The guy at the shop fit me and everything but still feel super cramped at the end. Toes felt like they had no room. I know I don't wanna slide around in them but I don't wanna be uncomfortable. You think I should size up ?

hey,
Its funny i had the same problem. Except mine was more it was hard to slide my foot into the boot without really wretching the whole boot open like a banana. But lemme tell you this. If the ankle part of the boot is really tight (like mine) and ajustable, then you'll be fine. i had no space at all in the bottom of my boot, and I thought i would be miserable, but the ankle holder part actually held me in place. It was not uncomfortable at all. Keep your boots bro. You'll be fine. Smile, its snowboarding

The ideal fit is when your toes touch the front of the boot a little bit when standing up. When you bend your knees the toes shouldn't touch but be close to the front.

Your boots will pack out while riding them and become more comfortable if the above is the case with your boots.

If it is a little uncomfortable its fine, you can even do several things to stretch them out and make room.

one example: put the liners in the dryer on high for like 20 minutes, in the meantime make some fat socks. I cut the front 3 inches off like 6 old socks, 3 on each foot and then put a really tight thin bike sock over those, followed by my snowboard sock. Put the liner on, put it in the boot, TIE EVERYTHING COMPLETELY and wear it for as long as you can stand it or until the heat is gone. For me this was extremely painful but 2-3 sesssion of 10-20 minutes each made a huge difference and now they fit great.

If they are super squished all over they are too small.
