Ok here is my story. I worked as an instructor back in my college days, so I am used to the normal aches and pains that go with skiing. Over the last few seasons I can not even make it more than a few runs before I am in so much pain I have to stop.
The pain feels like it is on the outside edge of my right foot, about half way between my toes and heel. It starts to ache and then quickly radiates across the the entire foot until I can not take it anymore. Once I get my boot off and let it rest for a few minutes its back to normal very quickly.
This also seems to only happen when I am off piste. On groomers it starts to act up, but never get as severe. I take a run off piste, and about 3-5 minutes into the run I will have to stop mid run and take my boot off.
Currently I am skiing in Head I type 12's. I thought a softer all day comfort boot my help. I has not. Before that I was in Rossi's and Technicas. I am in a 27.5 and the fit feels good, toes a just pushing into the front liner.
I have tried to go to my local boot guy, great guy, he suggested custom foot beds, and then stretch the shell a bit mid foot (this was on the Technicas) No change at all. So much pain. This season I bought the Heads after the kid at the shop raved how comfy they are.
Also just walking in the boots, no pain at all, in any of them. Just when I start to ski, and like I said when I go off piste the pain is so bad!
I have tried to mix up my skis also to see if that helped, and anything from 80mm under foot, to 120mm under foot, and the pain seems consistant.
If any of you boot gurus have any suggestions I would love to hear them!
I also forgot to mention I have been to multiple ortho's and non of them can find anything wrong with the structure of my feet.
p.s. I am in SLC, UT.
