Boot issues

So last season my boots were killing my feet (near the top of my feet) it was so bad i would have to stop riding and take an hour break in the lodge. So I don't know if I should get some sole implants because there is not enough support, or what i should do. I just need some advice please, thanks in advance.

If it helps my setup:
K2 national bindings
K2 Fastplant
K2 Raider boots.


I didn't have this problem with my last boots which were Burton something.

It's more than likely the insole the stock one is a cheap piece of foam that does nothing.

this^ I would also look into going to a boot fitter that knows what he's doing and won't charge out the ass. Hopefully you don't need custom insoles.

What are some good insoles? Ive tried various ones in the past (arch supports also) and they have always made my feet hurt worse. I've always had foot problems somedays I can barely ride but majority of the time its managable. Got the new capo binding last year and having a more padded foot bed and ankle strap plus canting has helped emensly. I also got fitted better for my new boots this year so I'm hopping that helps also.
