I have pain in a line that runs across the rear third of my right arch to the outside edge of the foot. The discomfort is more linear left to right than it is in a generalized area. After walking around a golf course with no pain I realize I may not have a foot problem, it may be an equipment problem.
20 years ago I had Surefoot insoles made for me at Whistler. I've changed boots three times since then and had the insoles adjusted by each of the shops that sold me the boots. The right insole has always felt a little higher under my arch than necessary. I say that because I notice the support under the right foot but the left foot just feels nice and snug with an even pressure across the whole foot.
The pain issue is not an every day event and it is exacerbated by aggressive skiing and tightening the boots in more difficult terrain. I've wondered if the issue is caused by too much support or not enough.
My current shop has cut material from the bottom of the insole on two occasions to reduce the pressure/pain. I can't say it's made much difference.
Another modification added in recent years are pads on the top of the insoles to combat a mild case of plantar fasciitis but the arch pain issues preceded the plantar fasciitis. I don't see that they are related.
Any suggestions on what direction I should go to improve my comfort for next season?
