The root cause is not the stiffness of the boot (I've snowboarded in modified ski boots), it is most likely a poorly fitting or broken-down boot. The solution is new, properly fitting boots. I had the same problem years ago... custom footbeds help, but they usually don't solve the footpain problem by themselves.
