frosty I just went and sent them back. I don't think it's going to help that much.. Could be wrong though. I am often wrong. I just don't think it's normal for my toes to go numb and first half of my foot, right out of the box, not even laced.

Of course yes. You said that is all right with the length. Bottom part of the liner almost 6 mm thick, and over your big toes the liner has the same thickness. It can be molded to the 2 mm, so you have a 8 mm gap. It is bloody huge gap.

Toe caps are necessarily if the problem in toes area. But problem can be with dorsum where blood vessels are. In this case heat mold will help you more easily. You can do it first with two pairs of sox, than try with toe caps.

You can make toe caps by yourself.

I think mold necessarily will help you, if we say about 8 US W.

Welcome to the club! I just bought the same boots but US9. I have 275 MP feet, and this is 9.5 recommended. This is harsh! But I believe that heat mold is the solution. Moreover, my wife have it too, but women's design and she got size as described in size chart - 255 MP is women's 9 for her foot. But she got a beautiful blue nails for her big toes anyway.

What is your size in MP?

I second this. First what I've tried was the removing of insole. I put my foot in and voi la! The lenght is definitely good! It follows that heat mold will help with insoles inserted. This is correlated with

I haven't tried Sole footbeds, so Superfeet could possibly lick stale donkey balls compared to them.

But compared to the footbed I replaced in my 2010 Burton Rulers, I couldn't even detect the slightest after taste of rancid donkey ball sweat.

My Rulers ended up being to small on one foot after one day, I got purple toe.
The store wouldn't let me exchange then for a dif pair, after arguing for a while they just gave them to me.

Even though the Superfeet were way thicker than the stock Burton ones, which I couldn't see solving my problem. The plastic arch prevented my foot from elongating when I tied my boot. Amazingly it did work, no more purple toe.

snowklinger Yea I wear a pair of Lashed and Tm-twos alternately, I know they have burlier stuff but even the not-burlier stands up to superfeet..I'm talking about getting something with cushioning like the Reminds or similar.
