boot problem or not?
 
I have a pair of women's size 7 thirtytwo prions. There isn't any snow yet so I decided to strap myself into my snowboard and practice some jumping/spins on my trampoline. It was fun but I noticed that the arches of my feet started to ache. I have slightly low arches but I tend to avoid arch supports because I feel like the pressure of the arch supports into my feet makes them hurt even more. What should I do?

I figured out that the removable insole of the boot has too high of an arch support and thats why my feet hurt. Imagine if you had a golf ball inside of your boot.. thats obviously an exageration but it feels similar. Can I just take out the insoles and wear them with no insoles at all?

You can take out the insole but I don't think it will be very comfortable. It might stop the arch pain but your foot would probably move around. I would replace the insole with one that fits your arch better but still cups the heel and adds cushion.

If you don't like them, then take a look at these. My ex left them behind when we split, and she only wore them twice for about 2-4 hours collectively. She never had any foot issues. I'd toss them to you for 30+shipping if you wanted them.

+1 Stock boot insoles suck... Good insoles are priceless for happy feet... Probably the most important piece of equipment to upgrade in any boot...

get some Remind insoles. The Medic model will take up 2-3x more volume than the stock insole.

If the boots are too big thats bad period.

Would I want more volume when they already feel tight around the middle of my foot :dunno: I feel like I dont want support anywhere, I just want all over cushion. Supports tend to cause pressure points for me rather than balance out the weight if that makes sense.

Prions are entry level and get real soft real quick, try some real footbeds. Just be prepared to go through 4-6 pairs of boots before you get a model, brand and size dialed in to your liking and the more you progress, the more performance you will want out of your boots....try on lots and spare no expense.

Also you foot will adjust some to the boot, just like the boot will mould to your foot.

How are the medics with the arch support? Looking at reviews and pictures they look kinda weak?
