Default Gooft Stance - Right Big Toe Hurts

Here's another possibility - How's your liner?
I rented boots today as well as a few weeks ago......same brand, same
size.......and had an uncomfortable toe banging experience today that
I did not have last time. I did notice a big difference in the liner,
however, i.e. the cushion was almost non-existent.
Also, if you're going to compare your boots to rentals keep in mind
that different brands have different sizing. If you're trying to
decide if your boot doesn't fit properly this might not be the best
way.

Hello,
Somehow whenever I snowboard in the goofy stance my right big toe
hurts because its being pushed more into the front of my boots more.

The more i "open" (placing the binding in a more open position) my
right foot binding the more my toes feels the pressure whenever i go
on my toe edge. Closing the binding more gets rid of the pain more
but its still there.

Any ideas on what to do?

Is it the boot size that is messing everything up? Do I have too
small / too big boots? BTW i wear Burton Hail 2006 - my sneaker size
is 9-9.5 and my boot size is 9.5.

Any advice on thsi would be great.

As others have pointed out, you can get the board onto the toe side by
driving forward into the top of the boot with the lower part of your
legs, as opposed to trying to put pressure with your toes. That
gives you tremendous leverage and takes a lot of work off your toes.

Another variable is socks. I use a thin sock. That is what I would
always recommend when buying new boots. If they pack in, you can
move up to a thicker one if needed. The boot should fit snugly, with
your toes just barely touching the end of the boot. If you feel your
toes jambing into the end of the boots when walking, they are too
small.

In the end, if those boots don't fit well and you can't easily resolve
it, I'd just get new ones. If they are reasonably new, you can
probably get more than you would think for them on Ebay.
