Agreed. As good a fit as possible, heel lift sucks!

I personally prefer these. It's foam so it's softer. It has an adhesive backing and can be sanded to make the edges rounded so they contour to the inside of the boot.

1/8' BOOT FOAM- 10'x10'

I've used these by creating my own insole shim, cutting side shims for the toe box, and right now I have a piece on the top of my liner over the toes to close some space. They're versatile and easy to work with and relatively inexpensive. It's hard to find a boot that fits your foot perfectly. Don't fret too much about them being a little big. This is a pretty solid solution if exchanging them isn't an option.

Wait until you start walking and your sock starts to bunched up because your foot is sliding around...happened to me with some boots I ordered that were slightly too big and drove me nuts....sold them on ebay.
Personally I'd say if you can swing it, get fitted for a pair that fits correctly. Your boots will continue to pack out with riding and continue to get looser.

Slush Puppie What I found is that that the boot is too loose in the wrong places and too tight in the others.

I added spacers etc but the boot was never as comfy or responsive as it should have been.

Getting the right size fixed all of these issues.

Extremo If they're only a size too long I wouldn't really worry about it too much. Ideally you'd like to return them. But if that's out of the question then you shouldn't have a huge problem as long as they're not loose in the toe box.

If they are loose in the toe I'd recommend adding boot shims to fill the space. You can them them at tognar.com
