I have not snowboarded alot, but thought I should buy a pair before my week away next week. Especially since the last ones fitted terribly with loose heels etc and so on. Terrible day.
Unfortunately, it is out of season, but I managed to find a pair of Burton Rulers online (yes online..). They seem to fit (toes touching when straight, not when flexing, 1.5 fingers distance when bare foot in shell only etc). When I try them on indoors they feel alright. However, after 40 minutes or so, I start to feel numb in the feet. And when removing the feet, feet are extremely white, except for very red marks on top of the ankle (arch), and on both sides of the forefeet. Exactly same marking on both feet. I know that I have hight feet and broad feet, so it makes sense. This happens also when barely tightening the boots.
I am using the custom soles (Sidas) that I made for my Ski boots.
I am yet to ride with my boots. Should I go for it, in hope it gets better, or should I rent a pair at the resort?
I'm sending a painted picture of a foot illustrating the marks. It is NOT my foot, but just to give the idea.

Ps. I know people is always advocating going to a store for advice. However, I have been to a few stores, and it is painingly obvious that I know more about boot fitting from leading a few hours online reading, than they do. This despite living in a decent sized town (Gothenburg, 2nd largest Sweden). And they are mostly out of boots my size anyway.
