I went through my closet full of boots and tried about 12 pairs on. The best fit seemed to be Salmomon Dialogue's, which surprised me due to how low end they are. The width seems just about right, but they don't have much room for superfeet in them. Would anyone recommend a fairly thin, yet supportive footbed? I was looking into the SOLE softec, but those don't look like they offer very much support.

Sounds EXACTLY like what happened to me last year. I noticed it when I was going through the trees in Big White... probably because I was always on my toes. I never really got it here since the runs are much shorter, but I had an issue out west. I even bought new boots out there and I still had issues. It was really bad to the point where id have to stop for 5 minutes or so. Eventually, I'd get through like 5 runs and it would get a little better.

This year I got back into rollerblading and I noticed the same pain. One thing that helped a bit for that was Dr. Sholls foot insoles (the athletic ones with the gel in them) I still get a bit of pain, but probably half of what I used to get. I think that in both cases, it was caused by vibrations on my foot (rollerblading on very smooth pavement was fine, the second I went onto an older road, I'd really feel it) I'm hoping that a new board with a damper ride will help me a bit this year, otherwise, i'll have to see a doctor.

I had a similarly confusing situation this year when I bought new gear for the first time in years. I mean 10 years. The first day out as brutal on my feet, but I ignored it thinking it would go away as the boots wore in.

turns out I was simply doing the boots up too tight. sounds stupid right?

if I did the boot liner up snug, but not as tight as possible (as I had been doing at first), and then proceeded to do up the boots, my feet were fine.


on the off chance this solves your issue (unlikely, since you've already tried so many things) or helps someone else in a similar situation, I'll put it out there. don't do the liners up so tight, but keep the outers tight. see if that works.

Anyone ever had any experience with Shredsoles or SOLE softec footbeds? I was thinking about trying one of these this year, but there are none locally for me to look at.

Honestly try the flows. Last year was my first year and I had foot paint like crazy. I went through 4 pairs of boots, 9 sets of bindings, different stances etc. Like Leo said, give flows a chance. It may not be as resonsive but it sure didnt give me any foot paint. Did you ever try cap straps too? Im gonna use them this year and wonder if they will cause pain or not.

This sounds very similar to my pain also, I get really sore ball of feet to the point it feels like my toes and on fire and go a bit numb. I am going to try using my orthotics this winter to see if it helps but I also wonder if a flexible boot is a cause since I use Vans Hi Standard.

My ride FUL boots didn't have much room for my superfeet either.

I got some orange superfeet, and peeled off the orange padding on the underside of the frontal foot area. They fit great now. Worth a try maybe?

I had the same paint although only in the front foot.
Solved now by:
- Cap straps - Burton Mission bindings - with them there in no pressure on top of the foot. I tried Flows and it did not work that well. With Mission I can loosen up my cap strap every time I am on the chair lift etc. With Flows you have to compromise tight responsive fit vs loose one without pressure and you can not unstrap them easily on the chairs to get at least some relief.
- More centered stance when riding and less pressure on leading leg
- Short warm up of the foot before I wear boots

I think it the main problem was the pressure from thight binding strap. Cap straps are really good in this matter.

Salomon Synapse Wide. They used to make the dialogue in a wide as well. To my knowledge they are the only company making a boot in as actual wide size. I have a 4EE wide foot and had problems forever with pain due to width, then I found the salomon's 3 seasons agon and have not had foot pain since. Highly recomend them for wide feet.
