Balls of my feet hurting...

Okay so I went out boarding for the first time in a couple years last weekend, with all my new gear.
Everything went well, but my feet were hurting quite bad. I expected this to happen with new boots, but not quite this bad. My heels weren't lifting off (as far as I could tell) but I had my boots pretty tight (especially on the bottom laces)

I figured out that was causing part of the problem, so I loosened up the bottom laces quite a bit, but kept the top laces as tight as possible, that seemed to help. My feet still hurt, but not nearly as bad, so I just lived with it until the end of the day. It was causing a bit of heel lift (still not that bad, especially after tightening my bindings)

When I got back home and relaxed for a bit, I realized the only part of my feet that really hurt was the balls of my feet.

When I put on my boots and lace them up, I never notice any pressure points around that part of my foot, it's just a bit tight in general, so would this just be the process of breaking in the boot (and the insole) to my foot, since I really didn't wear them around much at all...


One more super quick question, the socks I was using were starting to bunch up in various places (around my toes, back of my heel) and causing some wicked bad pain. Could I try going barefoot (may help the above problem as well) or just use super thin socks.

Thanks!

I'm not quite sure what to tell you about your boots. Umit could just be that you need to break them in a little but those pressure points may always be there like I said I'm not really sure. But I wouldn't reccommend riding with out socks. That will more than likely tear you feet up. What kind of socks are you using?

Same socks I wear everyday, but they are decently thick... I'll try some thinner ones...

Go out and buy a pair of socks that are actually made for snowboarding. It really is a world of different plus standard cotton socks tend to make your feet sweat which leads to cold toes which ruins your day.

I've had the same problem, i think it has to due with breaking the boots in, and actually i did get so pissed of the first time out i did take my socks off, it did help quite a bit. but maybe you should try snowboarding socks first, i didn't really knew there were any, i might go pick some up also hopefully they'll help.
