3) Make sure the bindings are setup right. This should go without saying, but if you've got a strap trying to put pressure on your baby toe, not amount of boot breaking in is going to fix it.

|triumph.man||I used to have a shart pain in my feet when riding. Found out I was tightening the inner liner too tight, and not getting any blood circulation to my feet. Now I just ride without tightening the inner liner, and boots feel sooooo comfortable now.|

idk, synapses+cheap bindings+so cal doesn't equate.
Sounds like the boots fit you. I have wide toes and I wear regular width salomons fine (+burton toe cap straps). The only thing is their supposedly upgraded footbeds look fancy, but they still suck. I had to get a set of superfeet (blue, in my case) to boost my heels enough to keep my F2s from shredding my Achilles tendon...now they're almost perfect.

|CassMT||it's not just the boots that have to break in, your foot does too, they meet somewhere in the middle, with time|

when you fasten your boots, kick the heel of your foot firmly into the back of your boots then fasten.
it might be too loose so your foot keep sliding forward.

|ridinbend||I have wide feet with big arches and I would say salomon is true to its sizing. I go with my shoe size. Pull the liner out, unset rap the boot and just open up the boot a bit. It'll be fine, the boot liners need to mold to your feet. Or better yet go get them heat molded and speed up the process.|

|snowman55||Get it heat molded with toe caps if you want them to pack out quicker. I had similar issues. It solved it. You can even do it at home with some old socks and rice if you want to go cheap. I recommend going to a shop if you can afford it tough.|

|BurtonAvenger||It takes at least 5 solid days of riding to get a boot to pack out. New boots, improper strap placement, feet being pussies, etc. etc.|
