Get a good pair of shoes and make sure you tie them tightly! and stretch as much as possible

As the custom footbeds worked for me, I've got nothing to offer but my sympathy.

I have the same problem that you are describing and desperately need to find a solution. Have you figured anything out? If so, please share the knowledge

Do you have flat feet? I had similar problems/pains. I tried blue superfeet insoles and they helped but I still had pain. I then tried SOLE thin sport insoles and 99% of my foot pain is gone.

Just gonna throw my 2c in here...

Question: do you find that you are scrunching your toes up or do they splay out? You don;t want to scrunch them.

I read somewhere (can't find the article right now...) that there is a major artery that runs most/all of the blood to your foot that sits right where your ankle strap goes. Overtightening your ankle strap cuts your circulation really quickly and would lead to numbness/cramping/discomfort.

The same article suggested that a common propblem was people buying boots a bit too big, once the boot packs out they had to overtighten their setup to feel the same response which leads ot pain in the foot. So then people think it's the boot and buy bigger boots etc... = spiral of doom.

I personally focus my tightest part of my setup around the tongue of my boot - I keep the liner tight and crank on the "power strap". I have dual BOA so I keep my shin area tight and let the foot area be relatively loose. I keep my ratchets tight, but certialy not crushing... if you're having response issues there's probably "gas pedal" (if you have 'em) or forward lean adjustments that can take care of that... I remember when I fisrt started I used to crank everything waaaaay too tight...

Hope any/some of that helps?

Plantar Fasciitis. I suffered through that for roughly 4 months. Would hurt like hell when I got out of bed, would hurt ALL THE TIME..

How I actually got it to go away forever " haven't had it in over a year" was by doing calf stretches - Plantar Fasciitis Stretches - Calf Muscle Stretches for Plantar Fasciitis 5/8 - YouTube

The last time I had any symptoms was the night before I went snowboarding. Once on the mountain I stuck toe side for about 15 mins until my feet started cramping. I thought " omfg my I wont even be able to walk tomorrow now", but the next day to my surprise the plantar faciitis had disappeared completely.

My PF was getting to the point to where I could hardly walk in the morning, and towards the end of the day I was in extreme pain. You just have to literally stretch it out. I know it doesn't sound like that would be the solution, but I promise you it works.

Just thought I might add what caused my PF. I do 45-1 hour cardio circuits when I work out, but my friend introduced box jumps into our work out. Basically I was bare foot doing box jumps, and I jumped onto the box with only the ball of my foot. I lost my balance on that jump so all of my weight forced my heal down which in turn stretched the living shit out of the tendon in the arch of my foot. It was sore for roughly 5 days, but like the dumbass I am; once it got better I decided that since I hadn't jogged in 5 days that I should go ahead and go. 5 miles later with my foot was killing me, and so was born 4-5 months of PF..

I stopped jogging the entire 4-5 months, cut cardio out completely, and stuck to weight training / boxing / brazilian jiu jitsu / muay thai.. Just wanting to show you that it WONT hurt a lot most of the time, but when you " well, when I" would do high stress/shock activities to my feet it would really really bother me.

Sounds like I contradicted myself, but the toe edge stopping / falling leave for 15-20 minutes cured me hopefully for life.

Sorry to write a book I just wanted to explain how I was cured. Hope it helps man.

holly old thread bump. anyways when you on toe edge, dont try to stand on your toes cuz that's not gonna get your edge up. rest your shin against your boot. your boots and bindings are not designed to flex backwards so dont try to fight against it by standing on your toes on the boot.
