Need help with toe numbness/pain
I'm new to snowboarding. I don't do any park yet, just enjoying blues and trying to figure out blacks. I've been about 10 days with all but 1 on my own gear. I'm having terrible foot pain in my lead foot. Starts in the toes and then if I try to tough it out will engulf my whole foot after another run or two. I've read everything I can find about this. I've fooled with binding tightness, strap positions, and boot tightness which hasn't helped. It alleviates things for one run but after that I can feel the pain coming back. I haven't changed the insoles in my boots yet so that'll be my next attempt if I can find anything decent. Any advice is much appreciated. I really enjoy snowboarding but the terrible pain takes the fun away a little bit.
Here's my setup:
09 Forum Raider 163 board
09 Ride RX Bindings
08 Burton Ozone boots
Stance is 22" wide, 18/-15 duck, centered as best I can. I do use some forward lean, slightly more than the boots naturally have (maybe two clicks on the adjuster) which I know puts some pressure on my toes but I like the extra responsiveness. Also, I rotated the high backs to be more parallel to the board's edge.
I'm 6'3" and weigh 260, size 13 boot.
I'm hoping I can solve this without some other major purchase. I don't know if the boots have a heat-moldable liner or not. I know it hasn't been done if they do. Sadly I don't live anywhere near a really good store so I'm stuck with only a few brands to look at.
So does anyone have any suggestions? I'll try some superfeet, or something like that, insoles if I can find them and I can try easing up on the forward lean. I do know from experimenting over the weekend that boot tightness and binding tightness is not the only issue. I'm sure there's some magic spot where things are better for a longer while but I still get the pain after a half hour to hour.
Would turning the highbacks back to the original centered position help? I read that someone had problems when the boot support didn't match the highback support, Could that be involved here?
Would flow bindings help with the larger strap area or is there a boot manufacturer that does better with high volume (wide and thick) feet with fairly low arch?
