Question My feet are killing me...need new boots

Just getting ready for this season and I am definitely going to buy new boots. Last season I had bought the Forum Recon Boots with the BOA system and I have had a bad luck with them. About 2-3 runs into the day my feet would start to go NUMB. I tried loosening them up, helped a little but lost some control. I am looking for some advice on which boots to buy or look at. I do mostly freestyle boarding, nothing crazy. Some of the things that I would like would be lightweight and most of all comfortable. Thanks

also another thing with the boa boots...when you tighten them down...do some squats with your feet flat on the ground...this will make the boa system even out.so it's not all tight up at the top
