The fool that sold my my previous Burton Hails mis-fitted them to me, so I was running a couple of sizes too big.
Hello world of pain.
I ended up getting a pair of girl sized Lashed boots which when paired with my Flow NXT-AT bindings have eliminated the pain that plagued me. These are super comfortable.
My only criticism of these boots are that the inner tightening system loosens pretty quickly, so I do have to re-tighten after every 5 or so runs. Other than that I wouldn't hesitate to buy 32 boots again.
