I had the same problem with a pair of Burton boots I had. I bought a pair of 32 Prion boots and have been in heaven ever since. Boa's are too tight on my feet and the laces of the 32's actually allow you to tighten/loosen the laces where you want them to be.

Also, I thought the boots I bought were too wide for my feet as well but after riding with them for a whole season, it definitely helps since your feet tend to swell a little from riding.

In my opinion, I'd say check out a few other brands of boots and definitely check into wide boots again.

A few things:

1. is the pain under your big toe?
2. do you get the pain when you're not on your board?
3. which color Superfeet were you using?

Definitely see a doctor and see if you can get a referral for a foot specialist. It kind of sound like you pronate a lot (your arches sort of collapse making your weight shift to your big toe). Between smashing the ball of your foot and aggravating it going toe-side, there could be some damage to the ligaments running under your foot. If the ligament is continuously pulling away from the bone, the bone will sort of reach out to the ligament to get it re-attached. So this pain may be caused by putting all your weight onto this little forming bone spur. If your doctor can shift your weight off that thing, your skeleton will absorb the spur in time.

You can also try a different color Superfeet - one with more support. If you were using the black one, try the yellow. If yellow, try the green. The orange one might be the best - lots of support and a shock pad under the forefoot. Two birds, one stone. Hope this helps.

Mostly.

Never.

Orange. I tried one other color also, but I can't remember which one it was.

I'll head out to a foot specialist if I can't find some way to get rid of the pain this year.

I agree with AngryHugo. See a doctor. They can work wonders sometimes =)

Is the pain on 1 or both feet? you could try putting a wedge under the inside of the heal and add a little more padding under the arch this should put your foot in a better position and distribute you weight more on the heal and arch and less on the ball. I'd see the doctor but also try to find a professional boot fitter it will be worth it.

It's on both. The stores that I purchased the boots from all had professional boot-fitters.

Go see a foot specialist. No point in spending any more money on boots and getting internet help (not that there's anything wrong with that), but a doctor who can examine your feet will be able to diagnose the problem better than anyone on this board.

Anyone have any recommendations for a fairly wide boot? The stores in my area have a monstrous selection of boots, and trying them all on isn't really an option. I know that every person's foot is different, but i'm just looking for something that tends to run a little wider. 32's seemed better than the others, but they seemed uncomfortable around the heel.

do you only get this pain from snowboarding? im thinking if you do actually have a foot problem you would feel pain when doing other physical activities.
