|plagtr2||Old post but I had a similar issue with my IONS causing pain on the top of my foot. Turns out the loops for the inner boot laces were digging in to my foot. There are metal "loops" that the string passes through. I ended up cutting them out & allowing the lace to go through the nylon loop (that the metal loop was mounted on) & this fixed my problem. The metal loop created a pressure point on the top of my foot that hurt like hell. Hacked 'em out & all is good. YMMV...|

|skramr||I bought a pair of size 11 Ions last year and my feet where killing me. I usually wear 10 1/2 to 11 work boots. I found that taking out the removable foot bed in the liner helped a ton and they fit perfect now....no PAIN|

|VTRDR||I have a pair of Ions and mine hurt very bad while riding last season. I swapped out my bindings and boom, my feet were fine, well better than fine really. I never have pain at all now. I was using Burton P1's when I would get the pain and I went to Romes and the pain is gone.|

|Suburban Blend||Try different bindings too, I rode a friends board and was unable to continue riding because the pain was so bad, it turned out to be the bindings|

The following combination will help with your Ions.
Heat mold your inserts because that will help a ton!
Second go get custom foodbeds made.
I love my Ions but I'm not beyond customizing them to my feet... in fact I'd do the above with any boot I'd buy.

|Triple8Sol||Those boots have heat moldable liners. Have you had them heatmold it? They can do it with this sleeve you slip over your toes, so as it cools down, it will mold to a larger toebox area and give you more room. That might help...|

Might be the piping on the speed lacing that is mounted to the shell. Take your liner out and see if the pain/pressure points are where the housing for the speed lacing is. If you locate it you might be able to add some thin rubber or other padding in those areas. Use a hot gun or super glue.
I know some may tell you to pitch the Ions but try to figure it out first and make some adjustments.
Next time you go to get boots...NOT to be smart ass but Boa systems or speed lace systems I'm not a fan of for I always feel the piping/housing in the liners, that is why I'm a BIG fan of good old lace up boots.

I used them for a full season so I gave them a run. It is while riding and not a problem while not riding.
I had the Cartels and then the C02s later in the season. Same pain.

|Rufus||Are the Ions new? If they are maybe you just need to break them in.|
