Wide foot that's wide in the middle, not the toe area. Low volume foot. Skinny heel and ankles.

32's finally fit width wise, but now the whole boot is loose and so I have to really tighten it and the binding, and my feet hurt, and I still get heel lift.

I'm going to go and try on a whole different set of boots now.

Loose boots makes for painful arches on long toe side turns.
Might try Nitro anthems, I have a wide foot with skinny ankles and these worked perfect for me.

As to the OP, I just snug my boots, not loose but not cranked down to the point it's smashing my feet.

Not yet. But I hear they're narrow (I have wide feets in the middle) and the wides are hard to find to try on

DesireeM81 Because I ride a banana board, a GNU B-Nice, I ride with extremely tight and responsive boots and bindings. I have fun with the board but I don't lose any of the responsiveness.

john doe Since I basically ride on ice most of the time any sort of looseness or slop just gets scary.

Slush Puppie I dont like loose. Well fitted but not overtightened is optimal for me.
