After years, boots suddenly hurt. Help!
 
Hey all,

So I have a pair of K2 Darkos that I bought back in 2010, size 10. I realize I got them a bit bigger than I should have (sneaker size is a 10) but for years they were super comfortable, but now all of a sudden I am getting a pinch/pain near the bottom of the right pinky toe/outside foot. Especially on extended toe side turns or when i unstrap the left foot to go on a lift (I ride goofy).

What would be causing this? I tried re lacing them, etc to no avail. It seems like they aren't really very responsive to my leg movements, which I can deal with, but I can't deal with the pain.


I tried going to a few shops to get some different boots, but 8s are too small while 9s are slightly too big (and everyone seems out of 8.5s). I just don't understand why I would get pain after 4 years (I ride maybe 5 times a year).

Boots are packing out? Let's you're foot slide forward and puts pressure on your toe?

20 days isn't much for a full packout, but if the boots were a little big to begin with, 20 days is certainly enough for break-in. You are lacking support it sounds like, figure out where and get some foam...jbars or sommat.

I would definitely try out new waxed paracord boot laces. Especially if you have a problem with your boots fitting right. They will help you get the right fit with your boot. You can get a slightly bigger pair and still lace em up really tight if you use waxd laces. They will stay tight too. You can get those at waxdlaces.com

you should really start a thread about your kickstarter instead of bombing every semi-related thread, this will not work well here.

Just trying to help. Does that upset you?
 
I think it relates and the whole reason they made the laces is to help snowboarders who are frustrated with retying their boots. I don't see the issue.

Registering in a forum for the sole purpose of spamming it with links to a kickstarter is not a good idea here? Man, this is a tough crowd!

This is beyond retarded, if the boots don't fit right, no lace in the world will make them fit! Tough crowd for sure... :rolleyes:
