unbearable foot pain, advice.

I have had this issue with every boot I've owned. The arch of my lead foot (left) gets to the point where it's so painful I have issues going to my toe edge. I am now wearing salomon F3.0 boots. I tried installing superfeet high arch insoles in my boots but after half the day its killing me again. My bindings are set at F4 on that foot. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

if it was easy everybody would do it. But if it was so easy would be even work doing?

Stop trying to stand on your tippy toes. The boot is designed to restrict and support your ankle. Drive your shin into the tongue of the boot to engage your toe edge.

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

whats your lead foots stance angle?...you 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.

18° angle, as far as to much arch in the insole. I doubt it due to the fact that it hurt like this prior to getting them. The pain/discomfort was the reason for the purchase I the first place.

if it was easy everybody would do it. But if it was so easy would be even work doing?

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.

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.

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

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

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