Is there any shell stretching that can be done for the tuberosity of the 5th metatarsal area?

Hello,

 

I wanted to get some information on what type of shell stretching can be done for the tuberosity of the 5th metatarsal bone (near the cuboid).

 

In my left foot, this is giving me troubles in my boots.  Since that is not typically an area that gets stretched/punched, can it be done there, or are my boots just too narrow?

 

 

Also, if toebox is too narrow and hurting medial side of the halux/toenail, then should that be punched out, or ground with dremmel?

 

 

 

All the info you guys usually request:

 

5'7", 185

WIDE feet which collapse on weighting

HEAD Raptor 125 RS boots in 26.5

1.5 (or 1 fat) finger shellfit

     You can get that area stretched, that plus the big toe area.  Find a fitter in your area and have at it.

Thanks miketsc.

 

To any Bears who may be confused, the picture below shows the tuberosity of the 5th metatarsal (not head)!!!

yup,  can get that stretched if it is touching the shell.   also worth trying to pad on either side of it, to bridge the pressure?

stretch/grind/pad whatever is appropriate to the specific foot, but certainly not a problem in that area of the boot, all you need is someone with the right tools and skills to use them
