I just drilled a new hole. After numerous days messing around with various options, that was the only solution that worked. If anyone else has this problem I used a 1/4 in drill bit and I think I should have gone a hair smaller. Aside from that... I don't think I should have had to do this. Disappointed long time Scarpa customer.

Jack Wizo- The first time I molded I went for snug and it ended up too tight on top of my foot. By Molding even tighter I effectively left myself more room on top of my foot. The over tightening of the buckle over my foot to the point of pain was the only way to end up with a mold that didn't cut off circulation when fastening later at the loosest setting. The only other option I would have had was removing my footbed, trimming it down, or removing plastic from the inside sole. The footbed is very thin to begin with, so not much room to trim down, and who wants to grind out plastic. In the end I have a perfectly fit boot, but Scarpa would be wise to add more adjustability to the buckle over the top of the foot. I have it on the loosest setting and It took two days of normal pack out for it to be bearable even after the painful mold.

When locked in these are amazingly aggressive, but if I stand up my quads just can't take the pain. The forward lean requires constant flex of the knees. If i'm standing on a straight flat traverse I get no rest! It's like doing a squat and hold against the wall for an entire day. I've adjusted lean to the most upright setting. What to do?

I re-molded them and cut out a piece of thick sock to fit over the pressure point. I buckled the buckle over my foot down to the point of pain when remolding. The boot fits perfectly now!

I just bought these. I've skied these t1's, the red buckle t1's, and the black grey t1's. These came with a footbed from Scarpa, but with the footbed in I have too much pressure on top of my foot. I do not have a wide foot, so no problem in width. Does anyone have a suggestion on relieving pressure on the top of my foot? I'd like to be able to use a footbed.
