Default Bont Quadstar skate

I recently purchased this boot and am having some issues with the toe box. The fit of the boot overall and especially around the ankle is phenomenal. The "reinforced to box" is soooo painful. Anytime I use my toe stops and just in general. The blisters. Ugh.

Does anyone skate these? Does the toe box break in and soften? Previous Bont owners: did you order the same size?

I'm coming from a leather hybrid carbon of the same size. This toe shape is a far cry from the soft leather lace to toe I'm used to. I needed the ankle support after an injury. Maybe I should have gotten a bigger size than I normally wear?

HALP.

Quadstars use the same fiberglass base as the Hybrid and others, so don't be afraid to heat them up and mash them around. If you just have a hot spot in the toe box, crank up your hair dryer.

And yes, mine are my regular Bont size. And yes, the leather is really stiff. The toe box won't move much on its own.
