    You can buy professionally-made versions (called "heel pads" or similar - often for women's shoes) but all they are is what you're describing.
    I've tried them on two pairs of shoes. In neither case did they save the day.
    One broke in enough that I didn't need them when tightly-laced, the other wasn't working so I sold em.
    YMMV of course. They're cheap so whatever, give it a shot!

    Can you go with heavier socks?

    No becuase things get too tight in the toebox. It's really a near perfect fit -- so close that a viable option is to completely ignore the issue. I just wondered if there was a way to pad things out in one spot just a touch.

    I thought I heard a lot of the derby wearers talking about heel slip. What do they do?

    Received my viberg x styleforum boots yesterday from onehotchili. Length was perfect but width/vamp was a little tight. After some overnight stretching they fit like an absolute dream. Glad I went with the 9--thanks for all of the advice on this! Can't wait to break them in. Here's a shot of them on my feet right out of the box:

    You might want to check out SmartWool Phd socks. I use mediums and they're just awesome.

    They're fitted socks that are padded in the forefoot and heel, but not on the top. Compared to some Peoples socks I tried (which were thicker socks all around), they really snug things up well because the effect is more like a slim insole than thicker socks. With the Peoples the boot still felt a tad loose with a too snug toe box.

    Another option that might be worth trying is the Superfeet 3/4 insert. It's relatively low volume and doesn't impact the toe box whatsoever, but lifts the heel a bit with some arch support that can snug up the instep.

    I have a pair of smartwool socks and they're just about right. Still a little tight in the toe box area, but I think with a wear or two I'll be where I need to be.

    Now if I could only find some boot socks of the same thickness and quality that actually look good. I'd kill for a red pair... the patterns at smart wool are awful.

    Thanks for the help though, I'm on the right track.

    Isn't that the reverse kudu in snuff? On the 1035 last? Whatever it is, they are amazing.

    The Snuff Kudu from Brooklyn Clothing.
    The colour seemed a bit darker, which i liked considerately more.

    The gents from BCC were awesome to deal with, and I got my boots within two days.

    Pretty excited to say the least.
