2013 Vans Revere Limited boot help
Ok, so I have unbelievably flat feet, and theyre wide across the ball of my foot and under my arch. I have Salomon Faction Boa's which were okay at first, but have since packed out and give me about as much support as a pair of slippers. So I found someone selling a brand new pair of Vans Revere Limited boots in my size. I tried them on, and though I could tell they were a little high in the arch, they had SO much more support and comfort than the Salomons that I bought them.
Fast forward to now.. the boots are still basically unworn. Ive spent 6-7 hours in them around the house in various insoles (stock, dr schools and finally some downunders) and while they all feel okay across the ball of my foot and also on my arch after a few hours, as soon as I hit the mountain my arch is aching after one run and I can barely handle the pain.
My question is..whats my next step? a bootfitter is out of the question - theyre honestly just isnt one near by, and I cant justify spending 60$ an hour right now to fix these.
Is there a way to stretch an entire boot across the arch? Or a way to flatten it out? I love these boots, #106 out of 165 pairs in the world, and I can feel the tremendous difference in responsiveness and board feel..but only for one run a day.
