Hope I'm not redundant here. I am celebrating that my new race style boots felt absolutely comfortable today, and they're still anatomical and snug enough that I'm making good turns.
The process took some tweaking and returning to the shop because the sensations on day one, which were certainly tight sensations, were not telling me what was to come. Some pressure points take days, weeks, months to irritate the flesh enough that unbearable pain then results.
Following the pain are the fleshy bumps, firm but not solid, most commonly adjacent the little toe. They grow larger and larger if the pressure is not relieved. Once you have one of some size, are they correctable? Do they go away if you correct the pressure point? Are they medically reducable? And, what the heck are they???
At first you think, yeah, tight, but I can deal. NOT. Anyhow, all's well that ends without pain. thanks for putting up with me and my jacked feet, guys.
note: as a kid I skied (30 + days a year) Heierlings, Race model, leather circa 1960's. stiff as hell, really. and I can't absolutely recall, but probably not super comfortable (single boot, 4 buckle) and no possiblility of punching or grinding. And yet, I never developed these troublesome bumps until recently (skiing 100+ days now, however) Is it an age thing or the 100 day thing, both neither what?? Thanks in advance for your time.
