Breaking Salomon SPK boots in...
I bought a pair of new 27.5 SPK's about a month ago, and have skied them twice (it hasn't been more cause I live in central california, and snow is lacking right now.)
Anyways, its been about 8 hours on the hill so far, and the first day my foot was totally numb, and hurt pretty bad, but i expected that cause I bought them snug, and fit well. The second day was much better and they feel like there breaking in, but they still feel rather tight. How long does it take for boots to break in fully and form to your feet? I want to be able to enjoy my boots :)
a few days usually. if you wanna speed up the process, wear them around the house some
Yea I have been. Quite alot actually. But im kind of freaking out that i bought the wrong size..
but i'll give it a couple more days and see what to do.
I think around 4 solid days of skiing
I have a pair and it took about that long until they started feeling really nice. I got them tight as well.
Contact me for some 4FRNT hookups!
That's a relief to hear... I was getting kind of scared, they were slightly expensive XD
Don't worry about it (assuming you bought the right shell size) they'll fit fine after 5-7 days on-snow, sometimes break-in takes less time, but generally, put a week on them and you'll be ok.

Wake up. Still dark. 40 fresh. Boards waxed. Camera loaded. Ready to rock. Cold fingers. Stiff joints. Red eyes. Epic mountains. Low key stashes. Waist deep turns. Grey bird. Blue bird. Hurry up. Wait. Wait. Film change. Time lapse. Time out. Game on. Going hard. 60 feet. Perfect tranny. Magic hour. One eye shut. Images captured. Dusk hits. Rally out. Sweet day. Sick shots. Cold beers. Feeling good. Heavy snowfall. 45 expected. Dark again. Sleep.
i got my spks for the salomon store in whistler and they said 4 days of riding and they will be 100% broken in
i wore my spk pros for 6 hours a day for 5 days and the first time i got on snow they felt amazing. so just do everything with them on
Shoulda gotten them heat molded.

just heat mold em for ten minutes (as per what salomon reccommended last season at least) you can still get them heated
i hiked a rail wehn i got mine and i broke them in pretty much the first day
Weezyblog shut the fuck up
Heat moulding the liners just speeds up the process of them normally moulding themselves due to the heat of your foot, so i don't think that will do a whole lot.
Get some footbeds and see how you go
