Lower Ankle Pressure in new boots

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I went out for the first time in new boots this year and after 6 hours, I had pain on the front lower part of both ankles.  I am wondering if this is most likely because of them being new boots?  Also, could having my weight positioned wrong (i.e. weight too far back) affect the lower part of my ankles.  Is there anything I should know about which buckles to have tighter than others?  Thanks.

bgraves28,

 

Do your feet pronate?  Do you have custom footbeds?

Inside or outside ankle bones... or both?

 

+1 to Bud,s questions (Im on a euro keyboard with goofy alternate keys)

 

How do your shells fit... do you need your ankle bone zones punched?

The pain is in the front of the ankle, not on either side.  Right where my shin makes the curve into my foot.  I do not have custom footbeds.  Everything else feels great, just that point.  Thanks.

Pull the liners out and slide your foot in.  Check the fit of the tongue in the area that is bothering you.  If the edge of the tongue is right over the painful area then it is the tongue that is bothering you.  Sometimes it can be reshaped with heat and other times the area must be removed (tongue that is).
