I have no idea, if this is right place to ask, but it actually does concern boots and feet :)
This year I'm having some weird issues with my feet (left one only). I have 2 pairs of boots. One is Fischer RC4 World cup 130, and I use it as working boot, while for skiing I have Fischer RC4 World cup Pro95 130. All of a sudden, after more then 3 years in my working boots, and after half year in skiing boot, I started to get problems.
I have feeling I got some extra "bump" on outside joint between head of 5th metatarsal bone and toe (proximal phalanx). See attached photo bellow for easier representation.
I never had my working boot fitted, since there was no need for this. I had WC Pro95 boot fitted, since it has extremely thin liner and it was working fine for half of year, but now I had such pain, it was almost impossible to ski. I went to friend who was WC tech for Lange till year ago, and he did his magic. Things got better, but on the other side, I have feeling my working boot are getting worse and worse, and this thing is pressing more and more, while I didn't even feel it before. Since I obviously can't hang in friends workshop every day to keep stretching and grinding boot, I'm wondering if anyone else had such experience before, and what was result of it?
I have feeling, this "bump" is growing more also because of constant rubbing. I had similar issue on right foot (but on tuberosity of 5th metatarsal bone) last winter with ice hockey skates. After I "baked" them again, things were solved, and I have no problem, but it looks like skates are easier to fix then boots.
So any idea, advice or solution would be more then appreciated, since I really don't feel like changing my race boots for "normal" boots when I go out just for skiing.
Thanks in advance,
PS: And photo of foot bones to easier see where are my problems :)
