On my right foot I have a sharp pain where the toe, the one next to the pinky toe, meets the ball of the foot. I can ski half a day before it starts. It only starts when I'm eating lunch, not when I'm skiing. When I take off the boot for about a half an hour it stops. But starts again after skiing for an hour. Other than that the boots feel very comfortable, there's no other pain. I could continue skiing with the pain for I only feel it when riding the lift.
After trying Atomics, Technica, Nordica, Lange and Salomon boots I bought DaleBoots. After several fittings and stretchings the boots were good to go, except for this pain. I'm working with a bootfitter who made a set of custom beds.He did make a small depression in the footbed under the spot where the pain occurs, but it didn't help. The boots fit very tight, I wear a street 10.5 shoe, the boots are 26.5, 309 shell. With these boots I can ski the steeps and bumps with more control that ever. At Snowbird I finally was able to ski the steep runs off the western side of the Cirque and below the Bookends.
I started skiing at age 53, currrently 65. I consider myself an advanced intermediate skier. If this one problem could be solved I would have perfect ski boots. Any suggestions?
