advice???new boots now shifter feels weird.

THis is the first pair of boots that Ive used so maybe I just need to relearn the feel of the shifter. I tried to adjust the pedal and shifter around.
The shift feels ok all the way up but then I keep accidentally down shifting when crusing. ( I know I sould not cover the shifter with the ball of my foot, I didnt even think I did till now).
has anyone had this prob with boots. If so, any advice?

You will get used to them. All boots fit different and feel different if not used to wearing them

i adjusted my rearset according to the thickness of my boots (space between foot peg and shifter), it does take sometime to get used to new boots.

You'll get used to it. My steel toe boots felt odd for about a week. Now I don't even think about it.

The of your feet should be on the pegs. Boots will feel better once you break them in

I got my first pair a month or so ago. Shifting was fine, but it was really hard to use the rear brake. Also couldn't get the kickstand down for a while.

It's gotten a lot better though.
