Hi. I've been riding for a good number of years now. And I've always had a problem with foot pain. It's on the outside of my feet, and I always feel like they're getting squeezed. So I have to ride with my boots a little loose. Actually, I just leave the liner loose, and then I'll just tighten the outershell/boot. As a result, I get a lot of heel lift. Here's a picture:
The area that number "4" highlights is the exact area that I'm feeling the pain.
I'm already looking into getting foot beds with my next set of boots I'm about to buy. Two questions:
1. Should I get wide boots?
2. Any suggestions on which wide boots?
I'm kind of leaning towards the Dialogue Wide from Salomon, since it got some great reviews. I'm also looking to buy some Superfeet.
I'd appreciate any input. Especially from fellow big guys or anyone else dealing with the same pain.
I wear sz 12 sneakers, but my boots are sz 13. They're Vans Fargos, with the BOA laces.
