Getting after market insoles with a good stiff supportive heel pocket keeps your heel in place and supports it, thereby controlling the rest of your foot and providing the support it needs. In every day life I support minimalist footwear as I think most shoes are too supportive and don't let your foot do its own job. But with shoes your ankle is free and you have your whole range of motion to let your foot do its job. So in shoes you might not need them, in big stiff snowboards boots you do.
So keeping what I have, what kind of insoles could potentially help?

I'll take a look at them, I assume you cannot try them 'in' ?

When I started with various rentals 9 years ago I had similar problems. Then I got some Burton Motos and always after a few runs I'd be in a lot of pain with a burning/numb sensation especially bad in my front foot. Boots would sometimes be off on the side of the piste and for sure at lunch.

Only thing that helped was having them so loose I'd lose response. I figured that boarding just hurts when you only get 2 weeks per year.

Just before last season I picked up some Salomon Synapse and guess what? I could charge all day from first lift to night skiing with no pain. My legs gave out way before anything else. It transformed my riding and I can not wait until Jan 1st.

Not saying they are the perfect boot for you, just that the perfect boots are out there somewhere. I hope you find them.

Hey man. Burton Hails were the death of me. $340 bucks down the drain. Constant pressure everywhere, especially top of feet. I bought a pair of K2 UFO's last night and had them heat moulded. Unbelievable. I would go to the store, stick your feet in these, stand for 40 minutes minumum. If they are still feeling good, pull the trigger. Best decision I ever made!

funny story, I went boarding twice last year, we got weak ass snow....but I did get some new Forum boots on sale if I recall..proper sized, but I THINK they still got my feet numb. They were better then the tributes, but still numb, but it was only the front half of my feet. I also get a new burton hero 2012 + the new style bindings....I forget what model bindings.

But even changing all that gear out, still pain.

I think I might sit down with someone at the house (local place) and have them walk me through some boots.

I am pretty new to boarding, so this pain is starting to make me hate going, and not wanting to go at all! So I want to nail this and just go ride.
