Actually I have fallin aches, I tried them out for the first time yesterday and on the mountain they felt great. It was a major difference when I was actually using them on the mountain. I had on thin socks and didn't feel any discomfort. They are packing out nicely!!!

phony_stark What everyone else said.

Puppy is right, don't think your Nike liner is like your old one and will give a little. It won't. I learned the hard way in my Kaijus and, after four hours, it was pretty clear that I needed to loosen them.

I got a new pair of Kaijus this season, and heat molded them. The first day I was out on them, the toes on my left foot went numb. Second day, they were starting to feel really similar to my old Kaijus. Third day, couldn't even tell they were different than my old pair.
I really hope it works out because I can't return them it's to late. The liner is fits just right and my foot is to the front of that. Idk the boot feels fine without that insole. I will just have to ride them a few times and see what happens. If it doesn't get better after a few days I will just try and sell them or something.
Thanks for all the responses

zk0ot bet theyre too big. the problem might be that the arch isnt supporting where it should be. putting pressure on blood flow or nerves.

zk0ot generally street shoe size is plenty big. often too big. (which could also be the case)

You can try heat molding them... but you stacking more odds into not being able to return them. will also cost you more $ good luck.
