Default K2 t1 db boots change?

I had the 09 t1 db boots, the best fitting and most comfortable boots i ever had as long as I wasn't riding in them. I could be in them all day around the house or resort and they would feel great but after 1 or 2 runs my feet would be in immense pain. Changing out the footbeds or heat molding didn't help at all.

I am just wondering if anything has changed with the boot since then because it's the only boot i have found that gets a great hold on my ankles and calves. The problem is trying them out at the store doesn't help, because I know they will feel great when I am nonot strapped in.

Are you getting pressure points at all? Why specifically are they uncomfortable? I got some new ones and they are super comfy in the house and on the board. If I get any pain it is usually because I cranked them too tight, or had my bindings too tight, or bunched up socks...

I wish I could offer you some proper advice, but I haven't ever used last years model so I can't compare.

Just got back from the store and tried them on, they fit my feet perfect and again they were so comfortable in the store. But I am still worried about getting them because of how much pain I was in last time, I barely got any runs down on the trip I took them on.

My pain is under my foot, it pretty much just makes my foot feel like it's asleep. There were many times I had to stop the run in the middle and take my boot off. At first I thought I just needed a better footbed but that didn't help.

I am confused now, need boots, love these, but still not sure if they are going to cause me pain again or not.

Are you over tightening the liner BOA cable? That could feel good in the shop (to get that heel hold) but be crazy painful when ridding and putting torque to your feet. Just a thought.

no, I tried many different tightning settings with both the boas and the bindings nothing helped.

Even though I switched out the footbed last time I have a feeling that the footbed was still the problem. I am going to get them and if they hurt again I think I will get a custom footbed for them at surefoot or another similar place.

It's a lack of meta tarsal arch support more than likely. Go get a full custom footbed and be prepared for discomfort cause you're using muscles that you normally don't.

Do you have any recommendations for custom footbeds?

I actually think it's too much arch support, I have the flattest feet you have ever seen.
