My boots hurt me, after 2-3 days. HELP!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I;'m a 65 y.o. expert skier with no orthopaedic or circulation problems.  I have wide feet (9.5 EEE).  I've been skiing for 2 years in Salomon XWaves.

My boots are size 27 (I think). they're comfortable, except for one thing.  After 2 or 3 days of skiing, the balls of both feet, under the big toe, and the other side of my boot, become very sore to walk on, after skiing, in bare feet (tho not if I have sneakers on).

Does anyone have any suggestions or observations about this?  What are the possibilities that the boots are too big, and my foot is moving around in them?  It does not feel like this is happening, and I have excellent control and can ski anything.

I would suggest reposting this with more detailed information about your feet and how you were fitted to the Ask a Bootfitter forum.

I would guess that they are too narrow and that the soreness is your metatarsal arch not being allowed to properly flex but that's simply based on my similar experiences.

You are going to have some decisions to make regarding finding a boot, footbed, type of footbed and such.  There is a chance they can grind and work on your existing boot of course.

Did these issues just pop up??

Put a lot more info in there and mention where you ski, how often (days a year, not just 35 years) and such.

It is all critical.  The cost can vary but ... for the first time in years I was doing turns without pain thanks to the folks at Green Mountain at Stratton.  Custom beds and don't ask ... but plastic was flying all over the place.

Someone here can steer you to a (we hope), good local fitter.

Good and straight up info about you is critical.

The best thing you can do is find a good boot fitter

find a goot boot fitter and I bet that ...

1)  the boots are too long (big)

2)  too narrow

3) you have a limited range of motion in your ankle.


but that is a guess,  no one can tell without seeing your feet, boots, etc.
