Pain In The Feet

Been boaring for about total of 10 days now and been having problems with my feet. Currently have Flow Boa boots which do not hurt while wearing. But once strapped in the side of my feet hurt as if my feet are being crushed from the side, but once out of the bindings the pain disapears pretty much after. My bindings are Burton customs and tried adjusting. my boots have been blow out too. Looking for advice and maybe a different set of bindings that will stop my feet from being crushed from the side?

What does this mean?

Also, how tight are you strapping in? Try wearing your bindings a few clicks looser than normal and see if that helps.

try adjusting the ankle strap on the bindings, most bindings you can adjust the strap to sit higher and lower on your ankle or foot. look on the sides of the heelcup on the back of the bindings a screw holdes each strap in where the straps are connected to the binding unscrew it and go to the next hole up or down. maybe higher on the ankle will help. also you can try to shift the ankle strap to either side left or right depending on the binding another screw or clip of some kind holds the padding of the ankle strap in place, unscrew that and shift the padding then replace the screw.

Yea I would definitely try looseing the top strap to your bindings.

Also, how old are you boots? If they are old, they may have lost a good amount of its support in the inside liner. If you have a dual zone boa system, try just making the bottom part of your boot looser. Your boots may be real comfortable while just wearing them cause they are broken in, but the real test of 'comfotable' boots is when your riding.

You also say you have been boarding for 10 days...does that mean they are new boots? You may have to just break them in. Took me a few days for my boots to be real comfy while i was riding

you're probably cutting off circulation. you have loosen up your boots and binders a bit then it should go away.

Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse
