If I knock the heel on the floor my foot slides back to the rear and there's room up front so they are long enough. They're just really roomy. Maybe I can cinch down the front buckle more to make them a little more snug on my foot. Thanks for your input. With some adjustment I may be able to wear these after all.
That is unusual....all ours are removable. Also, it seems the boots may be too large, not too small?
Go to a sporting goods store and try some footbeds. I think you will arrive to a good result.
