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.
