Outside of Feet Burning Help?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi. A few years ago I bought a pair of Lange Comp 110's. I really like the boot, but the only problem that I have is the burning. If I buckle up and then immediately click into my skis, I can bang out a whole day with no problems, but as soon as I stop for lunch, things can get a little dicey. I used to unbuckle my boots before walking around the lodge, which gave me the burning sensation every time. Then I started leaving my boots buckled, but still it was a tossup of whether or not I would get the burning sensation. I always feel it on the outside of the bottom of the foot, and it gets really bad, but it goes away about 10 seconds after I take the ski boots off. I have two pairs of socks, a thin CWX sock and a thicker pair of woolen socks. I get the burning in both socks, but it occurs more in the thicker socks, especially on warmer days, probably because of the sweat. After a day of skiing my boots become damp, if that helps at all, but I always dry them completely before the next day. This is getting really annoying, and I have the greatest fear of quitting early on a powder day because the burning is that bad.  Thanks for all the help in advance!

Have a boot fitter assess the fit of the boot. If the boot fits I would recommend a custom orthotic. This would help align the foot inside the boot  and help control the elongation of your feet.

I am currently using  volcano footbeds and have been to my boot fitter for grinding. The boot fits perfectly. Do you think it could be chafing?

Burning sensation usually can be contributed to pressure on a nerve somewhere. Have your boot fitter assess the heel pocket area of the boot. To much compression behind the lateral side of Achilles Tendon-ankle pocket could create the sensation you are having.
