at the verge of quitting snowboarding!
New member here! Names Jimmy. I don't know how I didn't find out about this site earlier. Anyways, after reading all the threads on lead foot pain on this forum, I'm hoping insoles are the solution (how I did not think of them before is beyond me!). But ya I just recently got new Burton boots (which I did try and walk around in the store prior to purchase) and Flow "Five" bindings (the ones u step into) to see if I can relieve the pain while boarding. To my surprise, the pain was just as bad if not worse. I'm at a point where as soon as I get to the top of the mountain, I'm already worrying about when I got to stop in the middle of the run to relieve the throbbing pain in my lead foot (I ride regular). I've tried everything else that I could come up with to help with the pain. Bought new boots, new bindings, put sticky foam in the boot, tightened and loosened the boot more, nuthing's worked. I can't believe I didn't think of insoles though lol. I'm in Sapporo snowboarding atm on a family vacation so I'm using rentals. That still didn't help. I'm seriously at a point of quitting the sport. It's become that much of a hassle. Any other suggestions on boot/binding combos if my insoles don't end up working out? I've only read about Superfeet so far. Are Dr. Scholls good for boarding? ANYTHING! I'm desperate!
