Booo! What kind of angles do you have on your bindings? Sometimes pain on the outside edge of your foot means you're not in a natural stance, and your foot is trying to rotate out of your binding.

If it's primarily when you are using the lift, you are probably rotating your body and putting pressure on the outside of your forefoot.

Try to remain sideways as much as possible - but button lifts just suck...

Sounds like your boots aren't a proper fit for you. Put your boots on and see if you can wiggle your toes. If you can't your boots are likely too small and the added pressure of the bindings is cutting off circulation to your toes. Also try adjusting different parts of the boot tighter and looser. Personally for me I have the bottom laces loose, and the top ones much tighter.

Also pay attention to what Varza said as well. Also next time you get boots go to a boot fitter so you can get boots that are sure to fit your feet properly

Varza I think you're already on your way to a solution... I'll add another possibility, just to confuse you :P

I used to have the same problem when my boots were a tad too big. I was cranking down the bindings as tight as I could and it was a lot more work, as I was trying to keep my feet from moving around in the boots, as well as dealing with heel lift.

Come to think of it, I still tighten the bindings just as much, but with proper fitting boots, it feels fine.

wrathfuldeity Do you have the shitty stock insoles or good supportive aftermarket insoles?...if not go get fitted for good supportive insoles that fit your arch.

PorkCereal Wear your boots and walk around in them, apply pressure in different stances that you would use boarding. Do you get the same pain. If yes, its the boots. What you can also try is scrunch your toes up as you tighten your bindings to give yourself a little more room.

Casperftw This is the only sport where its happened. when i take my feet out of the bindings and loosen my boots off a little the pain goes away but then i strap back in and the same thing again. ive tried loose bindings and loose boots. if i board without the boot liner will it make a massive difference in the way i board?

neni You also have this doing other sports or is it snowboarding specific?
I'm asking sice I've similar problems but that's from my splayfeet and also occurs whenever there's a lot if constant pressure.
