uhh, I am on the same boat. I bought a pair of Burtons, and I noticed that on my left foot the size 11 fits great and comfortable. The problem is with my right foot it feels tighter since my big toe touches and pushes outward. I am not sure if I should size up but then my left foot will feel to small in the bigger size!

So just an update after taking the boots to the slopes. As expected, anything toe-side, no problems. But heel-side, especially plowing, and my toes were jammed up into the front of the boot in significant pain. So... thoughts? Is it supposed to hurt this much? Will it pack out? Thanks!

Every boot packs out. Some more than others (in my experience a little less than half a size up until almost a full size). But you shouldn't have significant pain, not even on your first day. I'd go up half a size or maybe look at different boots.

This sounds like you need to experiment with some different brands, for whatever reason, your foot just doesn't fit well in those.

I picked up a pair of 32 TM-two's and literally took them out of the UPS box and into my back seat and headed to the mountain and hit the slopes for almost 6 hours. At the end of the day my toes felt a little "tired" because they were up against the front but zero curling. It was slightly uncomfortable but never enough for me to even think about stopping or taking a break. If your getting to the point that your considering stopping or its really painful I think that's borderline unacceptable discomfort levels.
The second day I went out I felt almost as if i didn't have boots on except for one slight pinch point on top of my right foot. But it was gone by the third time.

OP, I experienced the same as you with 32 lashed boots. Feet (more so the big toe) felt uncomfortable standing straight up. Sitting was more comfortable. I wasn't sure about returning them. I got some Superfeet blue footbeds and they are now comfortable enough standing (very little toe pressure). The liner has packed out and now fit my feet perfectly.
