Interesting . . . I have the same boots and the same pain. I already have custom molded footbeds. However, once my boots broke in, they were a bit too big, so this year I picked up a pair of 2010 Ions a half size smaller. I'm also going to try canted bindings to slightly reduce the lateral load on that side of my foot. I'm really hoping that makes the difference, but I won't know until mid-Dec when I get out for the first time.
