Intense foot pain

Whenever I ride I get this crazy bad foot pain. It is usually in my front foot, but sometimes its both feet. The arch, ball, and heel of my foot start hurting like crazy. Its so bad that I will usually need to stop after each run, sometimes even mid run and let my foot relax, and sometimes wont go away until I loosen my boots (taking precious time out of my short day, making me and my friends wait). I do not think its that my boots are too tight but rather too loose. I have a slight heel lift, and it is causing pressure points, and strenuous activity in my feet when I do my toe side turns. There have been times where if I fiddle with my laces, and tighten my bindings just right I wont feel the pain. I was also wondering if it could be my stance thats causing the pain though? I ride goofy 9/-9 with a 23.5'' width, im 5'10'' and 230lbs. Looking for any and all help wit this, its getting to the point where I cant deal with the pain anymore.

I use to have the same pain as you do now. It stopped hurting after I got a pair of boots that were smaller and fit me better.
You can go and ask a boot specialist if you have a ski shop near you that has one

Since you basically just said that your boots don't fit you right, you have already identified your problem. Poor fitting boots ruin everything regardless of how good the rest of your equipment is... Sell the ones that don't fit right on C-List and go pick up a pair that actually fit you. Finding someone that really knows how to fit boots is key

The thing is though I just bought these boots this season, and now its too late to return them.

I have a blue superfett insole, and it doesn't seem to help much, sometimes I think it causes me more pain, but if I take it out then I have a lot more heal lift.

I hear you and that sucks as I've been there myself...all in all though you'll be better off getting rid of them even if you have to eat a significant amount of what you spent than trying to ride with your feet killing you every run.

People always make the mistake of neglecting the fit and comfort of their boots, instead focussing on their board and bindings thinking those are the most important pieces to the puzzle. The truth is that your boots are the most important because if they don't fit properly you're uncomfortable which makes you not want to snowboard and makes the rest of your kit useless.

Put those things on c-list or even post them on here and see what you can get for them... You could probably score a pair of boots that fit you better for relatively cheap right now as the mid/end of season sales are starting. With boots it not about how much or what brand it's about what fits you...
