Default Boots for difficult feet

Hello!

I got a high arch and also relatively wide feet.. I've also had problems with pain on top of my feet cause the high arch makes my foot tall so I get a lot of pressure on top of it.. Are 32's any good for high arches? I've heard they don't last that long, but since I live in the mountain the whole season and goes out 5-7 days I week I really just need something comfortable.. don't care if I have to buy two pairs for a season.. I got some custom made orthotics with support for my arch, but I've read that superfeet's might actually work better than custom orthotics in some cases.. anyone got some experience with that?

T.

You might check out the Nike boots

With an issue like yours I would highly recommend just trying on as many different boots as you possibly can..

I personally went with Remind Insoles and they're ok.

You're right, the people who actually put on the Nike boots, love em.

Of course you're going to get haters, but Nike isn't doing to snowboarding what Burton is doing to it. The boots aren't made of inferior materials and the price isn't jacked up just because they're Nike. They're truly a solid boot and if the name Nike wasn't on them, far more people would be owning em.

Nikes run narrow they use a foam that most boot companies were using at the turn of the century. They're a soft flexing boot. Just because it has a brand name like Nike on it does not mean they know what they're doing in terms of making a boot.

Custom orthodics> super feet any day of the week. Check out the Ride Deuce or some of their line they run a bit wider, DC's run a bit wider but you get a bulkier shell, what you need to find is a boot with a good intuition liner that can be heat molded to your foot and insole it'll fit better.

My Salomon Pledges actually have an arch support in the stock insole. They are extremely well made boots all around. They are expensive if you want this years model ($350). Last years are about $200 right now, which is the model i have. Try on as many as you can and find what fits. Get then from a place that will let you return them too
