I have lange boots custom fit by Boot Doctors of Taos. They feel great for two hours, then I have severe pain in my third and fourth toes. I believe it is Morton's Neuroma. Where do I go from here?

try a small (15mm by 15mm by 2mm thick) padding between the widest part of your foot, if you can't go back to see  boot Dr.

You made need more width, or could be your instep is to tight and/or you need a metatarsal pad/footbed. Go back to the Boot Doctors...they're GREAT!

So, you have researched neuroma and know what you are up against, as the other have said get back to boot doctors, they should be able to do exactly what is required, it may be width, it may be instep height, it may be a met pad that you need to just give enough space for that nerve to not be compressed inside the boots

It is one of those things were little is enough you don't want too much space or the foot can rattle around and bounce off the walls of the boot which will just make the problem worse

Good Luke getting sorted, it may also worth talking with them about a solution for your day to day shoes, there is a fairly standard treatment protocol for neuroma and if done correctly mostly they don't give too much trouble ( just remember ski boots are not the norm when it comes to footwear)

Thanks for your advice. I will go back to Taos boot doctors as soon as the snow flies and I can get away.
