I been having this problem for a while. burning on the outside of my feet. i attached an image showing exactly where. someone suggested that canting might solve this problem.

Has anyone experienced this problem and solved it?

Thanks,
Dustin

I used to ride Burton Step-ins and I got pain in that same area.

Unfortunately I've made two changes at once so I can't be sure which has made the difference.

First -- I am wearing better fitting boots. I found that when I was going to my heel edge there was enough (so much) room in the boot that I was actually flexing (to the point of straining) that part of my foot.

Second -- I am now on Ride EXs (waiting to mount SPIs when the snow starts). The wedgie foot bed (even the relatively small one) on the EX has really eliminated any discomfort -- other than being way the hell out of shape -- in my lower legs.

I believe your second change- the canted Wedgie foot bed made the difference. I used to get the same pain as the original poster, but then I started using Ride NRC with canted footbeds and footpain went away.

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.

I had that exact problem and was wearing Burton Motos. I changed boots to Salomon and a 1/2 size larger and it fixed the problem. just like shoes, i think some boots fit a little narrower. if you have a wide foot you may need to try a different manufacturer of boots. i now use k2 raiders and haven't had the problem. at the time i was not using canted footbeds but i am now. i also have a short inseam so it may make sense to narrow your stance a bit if that is an issue and reduce the lateral pressure on the outside of your feet.
