I got professionally fitted boots two weekends ago. They are Atomix Hawx that allow for both moldable boots and heat moldable liners, both of which were done. We put extra padding on the outside toebox area and the inside of the foot just behind the knuckles. They also put in orthotic insoles that were professionally made by my chiropractor. Standing in the boots for a few hours while getting fitted they felt great. The fitter told me to wear the boots around the house for a few hours each day prior to using them to help "finish" the molding.
Well while I've been doing that yesterday and today. I'm immediately feeling pressure in the two places we tried to add extra room during the fitting. After 30 minutes my little toes start going numb. Over the next 30 minutes my 4th and 3rd toes will also start to go numb.
I know these are brand new boots and I haven't either worn them on the slopes yet, but this is my first set of fitted boots and I'm concerned that I'll need to get them refitted. Traditionally I know liners needed a few days to settle, but what's the point of molding both the boot and the liner if there are already pressure points where we specifically tried to avoid them? I've seen advice in other posts that says there should 100% not be any pressure/pain. Still others say deal with it for a few days.
