snowboarding boot for tender feet
 
Hi guys I'm at whistler mountain and I've been wearing the Burton imperails and they are hurting my feet like I'd get up the mountain and i would be like half way down the mountain and I would have to take the shoes off just to get my feet better again can anyone suggest a boot that well fix this problem I'm having I've been snowboarding for about 10 years and I got the never summer evo 2012 Rome ex 2012 bindings thank you

Out of curiosity , did anyone recommend getting custom superfeet? I know you mentioned you bought some but thought you might have gotten them off the shelf

I remember Whistler having several places where you could get customs done

I've been snowboqrding for 10 years and even worked a season in America with no problems at all I was wearing DC boots so I'm thinking its the boots stiffness that's effecting my performance on the snowboard if it is I'm going to buy a softer boot up on the mountain becouse this pain sucks especially when I'm on holidays from australia :/

The root cause is not the stiffness of the boot (I've snowboarded in modified ski boots), it is most likely a poorly fitting or broken-down boot. The solution is new, properly fitting boots. I had the same problem years ago... custom footbeds help, but they usually don't solve the footpain problem by themselves.
