Hylofarm Today I switched up my boards and rode my GNU with Burton bindings and I had no issues whatsoever. So definitely my angle and binding setup was the cause of my pain. I was wearing the same boots too.

Liliana How did you select your boots? I have very high arches and after going to half a dozen stores and trying every single boot they had, I found only one that was comfortable on my feet. If your feet are indeed of the more unusual proportions, you may need to hunt for your perfect pair harder than most.

If you feel noticeable pressure on the arches when you just sit with your boots on, not actually riding, then I suspect your boots don't fit you. If not, it may be more likely down to your riding technique, stance, etc.

campfortune Do you have the same issue with wearing shoes? if not, then, it's the stance problem. If yes, then it's your feet.

Perhaps move it down to 15 or even 12 and then bend your front knee there more stress toe vs heel side turns?

redlude97 I've had good luck with Sole heat moldeable insoles and hated the superfeet. I use the ed viesturs edition. It starts with a pretty high arch but when you heat mold them they go down to your foot shape

Mr.KnowItAll What are your stats? Height, weight, shoe size, measured foot, size of calves, overall fitness?

relax your ankle, feet, and use more legs when you ride… Maybe more heel adjustment.

Straps too tight is huge.

No forward lean, none.

Angle of straps, burton has three ankle strap settings on most of their binding models, the new Genesis only have 2, which is why I have not bought the Genesis.

The channel is great for these micro adjustments and small problems. A little more heel?

also, try riding with more back foot, like skateboarding. don't be such a control freak with your front foot.

Booo! My guess is there's something wrong with your stance, otherwise you would have the same pain in both feet. You might be putting too much of your weight on your back leg, causing you to 'reach' with your front foot's toes when trying to turn toe side, instead of leaning into it as baldylox said. Just a shot in the dark here.

wrathfuldeity whats your lead foots stance angle? will get more leverage with a lower angle....idk but it sounds like an arch support issue, cranking the binding strap too much or a technique...tippy toes issue....other wise lop of the foot and get a new one.

CassMT sounds maybe you went from not enough arch to too much? do you have any heel lift on that toe edge? if so you gotta fix that

as much as can be done with proper fit and custom insole fit, your feet also have to break in and strengthen, no way around that
