Its the inner one ie the big toe one, already had a bunion there now its like another one suddenly appeared but facing upwards not to the side like a traditional bunion.
The boots came with no footbed which I gather is standard for scarpa these days and when I tried them on like this I could easily move the front half of my foot up and down much more than in my custom fitted head vectors.
The bunion wasnt even rubbing, all my other boots have needed solid punches before I could even consider skiing them. The shell just felt too big so I fitted some low volume off the shelf footbeds I had on hand (conformable volcanoes) and tightened the buckles a couple of notches till the fit was reasonably tight but still not as snug as the vectors. I left them on for about 15 minutes with no pain but upon removing them the pain stared kicking in and the lump started forming.
I'm wondering if I cranked down too hard effectively numbing the foot?
The worst part is the timing, we fly out tomorrow morning for New Zealand and had planned a couple of days at a hill miles from anywhere near a bootfitter before heading back towards one of the major centers where I can get some work done on them. At this stage if my foot doesnt respond miraculously to the ice packs Ive been using there is no way I could fit any ski boot on as even my joggers cause pain with any tension at all on the laces
