Default Extreme Boot pain

Recently, I have had the worst luck (and pain) with my snowboard boots. About 1.5 years ago I bought a pair of k2's that my local shop said were top of the line. I paid probably $200 for them. I went to my local mountain about a week later (i wore my boots for hours before going to break them in). During my first run though, the pain was apparent. I could barely make it down the hill everytime and i would need to take 25-30 minute breaks with my boots off until i could walk without the pain being too bad. Btw it only happens on my front foot (right foot, im goofy). The pain happens on the bottom of my foot in the arch area and it only hurts when i go toe side. I tried a heel lift on the one foot and it helped. For my 17th birthday, my dad got me the nike kaiju's. I took them for a spin and the pain was back, I threw in the heel lift and still nothing. What can I do to stop this pain? Why does it keep happening no matter what boot I have?

Thanks guys

Heres a pic of where its hurting:

The arch of your foot is probably not getting enough support. Stock insoles for boots are terrible and do not even come close to providing the support you need. Remind insoles are what I'm currently using and so far they are sweet, I've used superfeet insoles also but they didn't really provide quite enough support.

^ Sorry to repeat what he said but yeah, you need insoles. Stock insoles always suck, I have a pair of ZF1s and I thought their insoles were good until I threw in a pair of insoles.

I've had similar problems. It doesn't matter what boot you get, it will always be there.

Pick up a pair of Zapz footbeds and get your boots heatmolded. Doing this eliminated most of the pain that I had.

Snowboarding is all about being extreme. Extreme boot pain is just one step on the way to that Shawn White money.

Custom insoles are the best.
Get them from the doc.

Could also be your stance angle or width or combination of both. Try the insoles and mess with your stance as well.

thanks but i don't think im going to drop that kind of money. I've heard a lot of stories of people paying 300 for ortho's but the pain doesn't leave.

What do you guys like better? Remind insoles or shred soles?

What everyone else said. I find that insoles + snow conditions affect how my feet feel. If you can get custom ones, do it; mine were $500 but covered by insurance. Even if you can't, almost any other insole will probably make you feel tons better.
