Exclamation Numb Feet, might have nerve damage.

I've tried soft boots, hard boots, Vans, Burton boots, Thirty Two, K2, etc. I've molded the inserts to my feet. My feet always get numb and hurt.

Right now I am using a pair of Thirty Two Ultralights. If I barely tighten my inner AND outer boots, its much better but still far from perfect.

This past weekend I think I sustained some nerve damage in my left foot (regular footed rider), because when I press on the middle top part of my foot, I get this shock sensation that runs down to my big toe and the neighboring toe.

Anyhow, the cause of the problem always seems to be at the crease of the boot, where the shin meets the foot.

Any suggestions? Do I need my boots to be custom fitted?
