Outer Ankle Pain
Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this I was going to toss it in boots but I am doing it here to play it safe. First and foremost I am very green to riding (roughly 10 trips) I bought a pair of Nike Vapen's last year love the boot they are comfortable, tried them on as well as a few other pairs and really liked them.
I went out once no problems comfy the whole time, next trip I noticed that after a few hours I started getting pain the in back side of my lateral malleolus (Outside ankle bone). Now it's almost instant as soon as I start walking in them, it doesn't swell up doesn't get black and blue but hurts like h*** when I walk when I'm strapped in going down the slope it doesn't bother me. It hurts for several days after depending on how long I board for. I've noticed that its the inserts causing this pressure and pain not the boot itself.
Am I doing something wrong in any way? They felt amazing when I tried them on and the guy at the shop was stoked he found me a boot that feels awesome because he said that's extremely important. I really enjoy boarding so I honestly just ignore the pain (Beer+fun > the pain haha)
Can I correct in inserts if they are really the culprit ?
