what's the problem when wearing those boots?

i'd just make make a specific effort every time you try to change gears in them and eventually your muscles should "memorize" what the difference is in wearing those boots vs the others..i'm sure it's possible..just have to make the extra effort at first

Ive adjusted the selector,but still a pain in the ass to change. really annoyed as love the boots,have also tried thickening the selector bar,still no joy. gonna have to move selector to its lowest position and try that,never known a boot cause this.i know it sounds daft but it really wont shift up right with them on. have emailed puma themselves to see iff anyone else has this problem, or maybe a refund and get some alpinestars..............:rant

No complete opposite,fairly soft,am thinking that could be part of problem,as alpinestars and cat boots quite hard up front.:confused
