if you are using a custom footbed, get it thinned out in the toe area to get remove volume
if you are using the stock footbed remove it and go without any footbed
grind the boot board thinner
make sure to pull the tongue UP, then buckle the upper buckles. This will make sure the tongue is not pressing down on your foot.
the boot fitter builds a pocket for your instep bump into the tongue by creating a "hole" in the plastic top of the tongue, or the tongue can be opened up and the foam directly above your instep bump can be cut out or ground to redistribute the pressure on your instep.
a good boot fitter can also perform an up stretch to the shell above your instep.
