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 ?

if its at bone or joints, you might have something going on in there.. if its muscle related try stretching more

I notice the outer ankle of my front foot gets sore after riding on black runs simply because I put too much weight on my back foot and bending the front foot in a weird way. Once I move my weight, everything is fine.

Yea it's honestly really weird. I've searched a good bit to see if people are running into this problem. But its always like arch pain, or like outside of their foot or toes. My inserts were definitely putting a lot of pressure on the back of the bone where it is hurting so I did heat mold them the other night and where my lateral is, the foam is def pushed out a lot compared to where it was. Like going from no indent to completely formed out to it.

Hoping to get up to the slopes at least one more time this year, to see if it helps.
