I don't have abnormally wide feet. My feet aren't narrow, but definitely aren't abnormally wide.

It's just the top. The boots fit perfectly, just that top part is really constrictive.

Hahaha. Hopefully I didn't misinterpret. :P

Really wish I got a pair of Nikes or something. They're a lot more basic, flexible, etc.

I've tried keeping them really loose, it's that seam that's tight even if I don't really do them up or anything. I wear them with really thin socks (if I wore thick socks it'd be really bad). With the insoles out, they seem like they're okay (but I'd have to use them on the slopes to see).

Maybe I'll stuff them with something to keep them expanded, and keep them in a warm area for a while? I don't know if that'll help or warp them.

I just don't want to spend cash on new boots. I'd have to go to the trouble of selling these, getting new ones, etc. I know what I'd get (Nikes or something relatively cheap but just comfortable -- I like blue runs, not black diamonds, so I'm not doing anything too insane).

eli783 They will break down with a few more days of riding in them, but honestly it didn't help my problem. I really love the grails too just hate that it feels like there's a brick on top of my foot.

eli783 I've had the exact same issue with uncomfortable pressure on the top of my foot with the rulers and grails. Just recently tried out some Nikes at my lbs and loved them.

speedjason just wondering what kind of socks are you using?

PaulWog Hopefully someone has an answer

I know it's such an odd question and it's going to depend on the make of the boot, but I'm sure someone is an enthusiast or simply has a lot of experience with this sort of thing.

I'm new to footwear upkeep across the board. I just bought two new pairs of dress shoes, some casual shoes, etc... I used to wear one pair of runners all the time! Hahaha.
