Default Sore bottom of foot

Well I am on my last day at Snowmass and I have this problem.

It basically is my arch. It just kills. I am guessing I am having "heel lift" and my foot is trying to force down my

I bought Forum Takedowns... Seems like a very good boot. No pinch points and when I walk around they don't lift. If I really really try I can lift my heel a little bit in the boot.

Bindings are Burton Customs with cap strap

Millinium three board. All I do is freeride. I ride toe side and heel side so I don't really favor one side until it starts to really get sore...

Are the boots the problem? Should I seek out a different pair?

Sounds like a bruised/stretched tendon... I used to get them all the time racing mx... The dock said it's usually caused by direct impact when your foot is completely stretched out..

Can you explain more?

Or anyone else have ideas. I tried the boots in a store and they felt great. Then bought from dogfunk so I have an unlimited return policy if I want to try something else

From the way I understood the doctor jargon.... it happens when your foot takes a jolt while tweaked.. or just tweaking your foot in general. Kinda like when you hyper-extend a knee... except on a much smaller scale. After the first time it happened and a wasted trip to the doc.... I would rub my foot while soaking it in epson salt and it would work wonders for the pain.

Edit: Basically if it hurts/sore where I think it is.. it's a slight possibility that the boots are the culprit... Maybe they come loose a little bit throughout the day?

That is possible. I mean the boot fits perfectly according to everywhere I read. No pinches, toes perfectly at the front. The only downside is my heel lifts ever so slightly...

I think I might try another pair of boots with BOA that has a 2nd tightener for the rear... I think I have a thin heel area...

What I think is happening is when it is lifting I try to force it back down and it eventually tires out the muscle in the arch of my foot

You could try an ankle brace or some foot/lower leg stretches before you board... To try to loosen that muscle up a little bit. If it's the one i'm thinking of it's the muscle that extrudes down in the arch of your foot when you lift your big toe..
