How do I reduce shin bang? New boots or new form?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I've been riding Dalbello Voodoo boots for the last few seasons and about half way through each season I get terrible shin bang. I ride in the park pretty heavy, so its bound to happen, but even if I take a week of casual riding my shins hurt like none other. I understand my boots are fairly stock, but I don't have a huge budget to buy high end boots. Is there something I should do to get a better use out of my boots? (i.e. foam inserts?) Should I forget about Dalbello and jump to Full Tilt or another brand?

Do you have custom footbeds?

If not they would stabilize your feet---this would limit the rotary action of your shin and likely eliminate the shin burn

What size boots?
What size feet in cm?

what Mike said.    Can you shell fit the bots for us?

3 prt boots (dalbello, fulltilt, etc) are just another boot shape.  They do NOT prevent shin bang, or other problems,   Boots that FIT YOU, prevent problems
