Question Feet feel numb after few hours of boarding

I find this odd! I have some nice Burton Tributes, size 14.

I usually wear a shoe 13, but these felt great.

I've switched out 3 boards (tried buddies), and 4 different bindings, but everytime ... 1-2 hours later, my feet start to get numb, and controlling myself is tough. I've only boarded about 5 times, but I really getting the hang of it ... can spin down hills, carve, etc. My feet just get numb

Starts near the top of my foot, near where my ankle is. I've tried everything with my bindings, except moving them down/up? Maybe the positioning is totally wrong?

Any ideas what I can try? Maybe just new boots? size 12.5/13 ?

Sounds like you have your boots too tight.

You won't do it.

Boots are too big foots sliding around not being stabilized causing you to use muscles you shouldn't/don't normally use.

I think that would be cramping not numbness. Something has gotta be cutting off circulation.

You won't do it.

10 years of boot fitting I can tell you it's from the boot being too big.

Boot to big as has been stated. Buckles way to tight. Boots to tight.

unlikely on the tightness of straps, i've tried 4 different bindings, and consciously tried different tightness, or looseness.

I am going to get a snugger pair of boots, see if that helps....it's the only thing I have not changed!

You also need a real footbed to support the arch.
