Big boots - hurt. When I was first starting out, I had a pair of loaners from a buddy that were just a size too big and they killed my toes, while learning toeside even.. I got a pair of boots that fit, bottom-of-the-line generic boots albeit and I was carving in no time.
I've had the same crappy boots ever since! I cannot wait to get some quality boots and see the difference they'll make.
Thanks for the advice. I have now replaced my old boots and the comfort has definately improved
