I agree, breaking the boots in is the major factor. I had the same issue when I started wearing my Sidi boots.

my alpinestar s-mx was that way when i first got it....was a pain in the ass, until it broke in. just bang your foot really hard when shifting and wear it around till it starts loosening up. i don't leave the house without mine now

It took me a couple of rides to get used to the boots and now I love them.
