I had purchased some boots that were a bit too big. I wear a 11 US sneaker and was in a 29.5 shell boot. Needless to say I wasn't fit by my normal bootfitter as I had to go to a different store (same company) when their preseason sale was on. I went last week and got new boots. I'm now in a 27.5 Dalbello Axion 10s. I tried them out on a ski trip over the weekend and ended up with a badly bruised big toe on my right foot. I went back to the shop Monday and had the fronts of the boots punched out. My toe was still swollen so I couldn't really tell how well the stretch would work. I'm skiing Friday night so I tried them on again tonight, and they still feel like they're pushing on my toe. I took the liners out to see how they fit. My big toes (my big toe is probably a quarter inch longer than my other toes) are still pressing against the front of my liners. The left one feels good, but the right one still feels like its pressing to hard, although I'm sure part of that is the swelling. My toes press hard enough that the front of the liner is stretching where my big toes are. So I wasn't sure, should I go get the liners stretched even more, or should they fit that tight?
