I have been skiing just under 60 days this season with only 1 day off snow. I have developed pain on down beside my big toe on my foot and upon googling it I believe I have bunions. I purchased new boots this season, got a custom foot bed. Everything was going great. Upon first putting on my boots in the morning I would feel pressure on the same spot but this would subside throughout the day. Only in the past week has the pressure been irritating, resulting in me doing a bit of research.
I took my boots back and they punched them out for the relief on the pressure points. However, now the right boot appears to have too much room somehow.... I force myself to curl my toes to grip when making turns to the left. My right turns are fine.
My other concern is - are my boots giving me the bunions? If so, shouldn't I be making more room for my big toes so they aren't pushing over to my smaller toes?
Thoughts, comments, suggestions are much appreciated.
