Default Trimming goggle foam?

Hey All,
Went shopping for my first pair of goggles. One thing I noticed on them all was that they would squeeze the top part of my nose too much, not allowing me to adequately breathe through my nose. Has anyone tried trimming away some foam for a more comfortable fit, or have any ideas on a fix?

I have the same problem with most goggles because my nose is pretty wide.

You just have to hunt around until you find something with a large enough nose section. Oakely came out with some new model in 2010 with a wide nose gap, but I forget the name.

I currently wear Smith I/O, which are pretty good... the Anon Hawkeye are also fairly wide and the Smith Phenoms are ok.

Trimmng foam won't help much if the actual goggle itself isn't wide enough.

Just do them up super tight for a while and it should pack out a bit...At least thats what I do.
Come to think of it maybe clamp it down overnight or something.
Trimming might work but it would sure suck if you cut out too much or the wrong shape.

Thanks for the advice...But no longer needed. Went by Dickssporting Goods and found a pair of Giro Root goggles for 26 bucks, marked down from 129.99!
