I'd like to try them out, as I'm getting a lot of the same pains described in this thread (though mostly my back foot, not so bad on my front foot). Hmmm...

Thought I would bump this thread since I finally found the solution to my foot pain!

Turns out that for me, it was not the boot at all, but the bindings. I had a size 9 boot in a L binding, and after I stap my foot in, the boot would slide towards the outside wall of the footbed in my binding while I was snowboarding. This resulted in the whole outer section of my foot (from my pinky to about the middle of my foot) to get very painful and then eventually go numb. I bought some medium bindings, and I went snowboarding on them for the first time yesterday. I'm finally pain free!!

Thought I would post this incase anyone else is having similar issues...

Thanks for posting! Was the slipping in the binding obvious to you right away? I'm wondering if I'm suffering from the same thing, but it doesn't seem like my foot is sliding back and forth...perhaps I'm just not noticing it right now and it's still the issue?

Thanks,
Per

No, it wasn't obvious at all. I actually bought new boots first... I strapped my boot in and there was a small gap between each side of my boot and the side of the footbeds - my boot appeared centered in the binding. After one or two runs, my foot would end up being right against the outside wall of the footbed. I couldn't feel my feet sliding at all... you could just see the difference if you inspected the binding after each run.

I'm back again before the season starts. Unfortunately, the foot pain hasn't gone away.... Anyone have any other suggestions as to what I can do?

Hopefully it won't be as bad as what my foot pain turned out to be...I'm sitting here with a big boot on my foot, just got the cast off this morning. Turned out I had a separated tendon in my back foot, plus a chipped bone and cartilage damage. They cut the side of my foot open, peeled the skin back like a banana and reattached the tendon, then sanded down my ankle and drilled holes in it...somehow that's supposed to help rebuild cartilage, or something like it.

Bottom line; I'm out for the season. Today is the first day in two weeks that I've been out of bed. I still have another month on crutches, and another month after that with the boot. Then a couple of months of physical therapy.

I could have dealt with this last season when the pain started, but I just "worked through it." I just kept riding, then hoped resting up over the summer would help. It didn't, obviously. The pain just got worse. Now I'm fucked. I'll be sittin in the lodge getting drunk while my wife skis with our friends. My best hope is late Spring riding, maybe a trip to Mammoth.

The moral of the story should be pretty clear...if it hurts really bad, don't keep doing whatever you're doing!

I'm gonna go ahead and give this another bump. I'm still having foot pains. It's holding me back from enjoying riding...

Here's another list of things I have done:

-Tried flows. I absolutely hated them. Some people love them, but I honestly couldn't stand the feel of having one strap.

-Went to several pediatrists. Some of them said I had no problems at all with my feet. One of them mentioned that I had minor metatarsalgia and installed some supports in my boots. I couldn't even get up the damn lift because those things gave me so much pain. I went back and they said since those don't work then just try custom orthotics. Several hundred dollars later and multiple return visits, I'm still in pain.

Any other suggestions? I might just be forced to go back to skiing....
