I have been having a lot of trouble with my boots this season. My current gripe is that my right leg feels like it has been beaten up after a few hours of skiing. The pain is around where the top of the cuff to a few inches down my leg from there (bottom of the wide part of my calf where the leg starts to straighten). The discomfort is tolerable while skiing, although it is probably just because I am preoccupied. However, when I go to walk in my boots, each steps feels worse and when I take my boots off, I can only walk with a fairly extreme limp and even then it really hurts for an hour or so.
Looking at my leg right after skiing, I notice that the affected area is a little red and extremely sore to the touch. The coloration changes back to normal within a few minutes, but the soreness lingers for a while. As of now, the soreness has been constant for a week as I have skiied the last 4 days and only had 1 day break between another set of skiing for 5 consecutive days, with a similar pattern for the past 2 months.
I have been playing with every adjustment on my boots, but nothing seems to help. The boots are Tecnica Diablo Hot Forms which were recently reformed. I also have a custom cork insole.
