HORRIBLE foot pain please help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello - 

 

I bought a new pair of Head PRO ski boots last year. I like them because they are a nice snug fit and give me better control of my skis. However, I get excruciating pain in my feet.  Last season I did not have a foot bed in there. I did my first few days of skiing this past week and decided to have a professional boot fitter make some adjustments to my boot and also add the foot beds.  Ive only skied in these new boots a total of 8 times so they are probably not fully packed yet, Anyway, the foot beds helped a little however I still get horrible pain on the outer bones of my feet (I believe the metatarsals).  I have very flat feet and when I used to play ice hockey I experienced the same type of pain in my ice skates...and they were even custom molded to my foot.  Any idea what could be causing this pain and what I can do about it? it really interferes with my ability to enjoy skiing.  Thanks so much!

yes, some of the bones of your feet are making contact with the boot shell. you should probably have a competent boot fitter change the shape of the boot shell to accommodate those points of contact.
