Default Feet going numb from boots

The last few seasons, my feet have been going numb pretty quickly due to my snowboard boots. The boots are supposed to be tight, but then my feet go numb. If they are loose, then I can't ride for shit. Different boots have given me the same problem.

Anybody else have this problem or any ideas how to better circulation in my feet?

Yeah. Just forgive yourself for buying them and go get a pair of K2 UFO's with Boa. I bet they will fit like a glove. My 340 dollar Burton Hails made my feet go numb and were ditched after 1 season. So glad I found these gems.

Its a pain in the arse (or foot). My first pair of boots last season fitted perfectly in the shop and perfect for 2 weeks then all of a sudden a constant pain in the ball of my left foot. Bought a 2nd pair and low n behold 2 weeks later the exact same problem that I stuck with.

I'll try and add a bit of support to see does that help this season but how am I expected to know if a boot fits when the problem doesnt surface for about 2 weeks of use!

It certainly is crazy that boots feel great at the shop and then as soon as you get them home and on your feet for more than half hour the pain cometh. Big money down the drain. With the K2's, I literally told the salesman that I would be wearing them for 45 minutes before purchase. Thats how I found the perfect pair.

LOL i think thats exactly what people need to do. Dont feel rushed guys, you are the ones throwing down some serious dough. When I grab boots this season, I plan to be in the shop for at least a hour lol.

the "buy a 1/2 size smaller...they'll pack out" way of thinking doesn't work for me. I get boots that fit as good as possible right from the start (snug, toes just grazing the front and not pinched from the sides)...guess they don't last as long before feeling packed out, but no pain sessions

supposedly, boots that are too big can cause pain, too, but new insoles and stuff can help that...just be sure to get the right arch height

The best pair of boots I have had that were snug, were fucking cheapo shit box store brands. like 5150 or something. It's ridiculous.

There were stiff as hell too.

I have a wide but low volume foot. And the width starts real early, mid foot, not in the toe box. The 32's I got finally felt good width wise, but too loose all the way around. Might try the new liners from Remind

They definitely shouldn't feel too comfy in the shop. If you able to just walk around the shop and chill in them try a size smaller. I don't buy the size half down bit, but I do make sure my toes are right at the tip. I have a pair of rulers one size too big and man does it suck when ur feet are sliding around

I usually stick with K2 boots for that reason. Many other boots give me issues, but K2 has consistently been good to my feet. I currently have the K2 Maysis boots. If you're wondering why I have some in the for sale forum, those particular ones don't fit, but I immediately bought another pair of Maysis boots in the right size.
