I just started riding again after about 10 years and I'm hooked. I have a ton of AMEX rewards points which I used on Amazon to buy a new board and boots. I ended up getting the Ronix Bill board and separately ordered the Relik boots based on a few reviews I read that they are a little more flexible and not quite as high as the other boots in the Ronix lineup.

They only had a pair of 11's in stock. I got them in yesterday and they fit a little snug and they haven't been heat molded yet. I'm worried that they might hurt my toes while riding, or falling to be more clear.

How snug should closed toe boots fit?

Mine are very snug, toes just barely touch the front. I wouldn't heat mold them, just ride them and break them in/mold that way.

Ok. Good. Mine feel about the same but still feel like I have some flexibility without being too restricted. I'm guessing they will stretch a little and as hot as it is in Texas right now I could prob heat mold them in the sun if I want them any tighter. The heel does feel a little loose but I think they give you some inserts for that. How do you like yours? What board do you ride? I originally ordered the One board but after digging a little
more it really seemed like the Bill was a better all around board and may be a little easier for me as I am essentially a beginner again.

I like them, getting used to the lower cut still. Yes, the warm Texas water will mold them just fine in my opinion, and break them in, or pack them out as I like to refer, a bit and make them a little more roomy. Mounted on a Slingshot board, but you should enjoy the Bill. Just ride, and make sure your stance is comfortable above most things.
