    i had my first pair in size 8.5 last year but I didn't enjoy the shoes because of the heel slippage. I did everything but it didn't go away. So I tried to get another at size8. Still, there's heel slippage. I tried to lace up to the last eyelet. Somehow, the slippage reduced, but it didn't feel comfortable. What should I do? Should I continue lacing up to the last eyelet or should I do something? Please I need your help. I want to love them. Thanks for any advice.

    To make the shoe more flexible BITD we used a razor blade to cut slits on the forefoot. Just remember to remove your foot before cutting the sole.

    You solve this by buying CB 4.3s. Or Vapor 9. Or Barricades.

    Sorry I forgot to mention, I already did this but it felt the same with only tying to the last eyelet. :(

    Sorry I also forgot to tell about this. I did this thing about 5 times and I didn't want to do it again 'cause I might already "break" the shoes. I agree. The sole (and the shoe itself) is very stiff. My assumption is, the plastic thing at the back (heel) is the culprit for the heel slippage. The shape is somewhat weird. :neutral:
