Here is my situation:
I am a former racer who is currently doing a beer league and 2-3 days of free skiing a week. I have this year developed a 6th toe which is taking every ounce of aggressiveness out of my skiing.
I am skiing on some Nordica 150wc dobermans that are at least 4 years old and this is the first year I have had this problem so I am not sure what the best avenue to fix it is. Here is a picture of my foot.
While I was away this past weekend I had them punch out my boots a little just to make it throu the weekend. I had them do it minimally because I don't want to have un-necessarily wide boots that will cause me to boot out every time I strap on my gs skis.
The boot is stock, the footbed is stock. Up until now (26yrs old) I have never had any custom work done on my boots. This year I developed the same problem on both feet. I have even resorted to not wearing shoes while sitting at my desk at work to give them time to heal. I would like to know which steps I should take first to correct this problem.
I have been doing ice baths to help reduce the swelling. I'd like to avoid surgery and hopefully be able to mtn bike in the summer without problems as well.
