BurtonAvenger It's not necessarily a fit issue, it's a result of having a boot that fits. Your arch is not used to actually being cradled in there so instead of sliding around in the boot and being sloppy it's using the muscles the way it should. Basically you're retraining muscles from years of using them wrong. My .02 cents pull the stock insoles out and get something aftermarket that really cradles the arch and gives it support.

I've nothing to add to the OT but when I was 17 I'd often drive my 4 spd manual home from the hill in my boots. The most memorable being <3 hrs in sketch conditions including a super winding downhill stretch.

Now, I'm not entirely down with the idea of driving my 5 spd in boots from one parking lot to the other I can do it but I always change out of boots to drive back.

but.... did you get sized up by a person? that knows how to fit boots?

Or did you just say" i wear size 9 shoes, i should try 9 boots"

wrathfuldeity Get fitted for insoles, put them in your regular shoes to get them broken in and your feet adjusted to them. Then go try on boots but bring your insoles with....take out the shitty stock insoles of the boot ur trying on...put in your own insoles and then go from there. Seriously, good insoles make a world of difference. Also make sure you have proper sb socks...I actually use a thin wicking liner sock and a thin sb smartwool sock...can go all day....sometimes don't even take off my boots to drive 1 hour home.

SkullAndXbones what brand of boots are they? like sneakers, some boots are wider than others. maybe you just have narrow feet? or wide feet? you said there's some gap while your foot is in the boot, maybe try a size smaller? when you're walking in them is one thing but when you're riding you're boots are stationary in your bindings and your feet should be stationary inside your boots. it sounds like they're too big to me. try on an 8.5 or try a 9 in a different brand to see if you can figure out what's going on. or like i previously stated, maybe they're just too wide.

You can try aftermarket insoles but this does not sound normal.
Hence why I said "maybe". It definitely sounds like a boot fitting issue.
