Have you heat molded them?
My 2013 dropkicks were incredibly uncomfortable when I first got them and I didn't understand why everyone hyped up Full tilts. I wore them around the house to try and "break them in" but they were still painful.
Once I heat molded them at my local shop, that changed everything. They're now insanely comfortable and by far the best boots I've ever ridden. Full tilts for life man
