Do you have any foot pain just walking? Or is it only during snowboarding?
just during snowboarding.

Yes... I used to get plantar fasciitis pain in my feet (in the arch and the heel) within like 10 mins of walking on a hardwood floor (basically always had to sit down as slipper only gave me like 5-10 more minutes).

If I wore sandals I would get foot pain after like an hour of walking around. Ironically, I never really had any problems running (have run several half marathons without any footpain... haven't done a full marathon because I don't want to press my luck).

Now I can wear sandals pretty much indefinitely... and it takes an hour or more before my feet start to hurt on hardwood floors (so I still have foam mats in the kitchen when I'm cooking/cleaning).

I recently started using EPAT done to my feet and after 2 session, my ankles joint feel lot better (hard to describe... like I took off a tight sock and now the joint hinges better). The last two season, my ankles have start to get tweaked when I widen my stance too much - I am hoping they will feel better after this EPAT treatments.

Have your friend check you peroneus longus, extensor digitorum and flexor digitorum muscles, they can interfere with your calf (gastroc and ... err... the soleus) lengthening... if you calf doesn't length when you bend your knees... you ankle can't hinge as well, if you ankle doesn't hinge... then your arch starts to take a lot of pressure).

I think Lonerider is on to something the only thing I can contribute is it might be a lack of metatarsal arch support?

What part of your arch hurts? Can you load a pic of the spot(s)?

Both feet hurt or just one foot?

I thought it wasnt good to work out without shoes on because of the lack of support...

That's a big topic of discussion in the running community these days. The current thought (fad?) is to strengthen the feet by eliminating support so one's own musculoskeletal structures do the job. There's no conclusive evidence for or against at this point, but it's what's going on.

Ya and to a certain extent it makes sense to me, but Im assuming they mean much lighter workouts if your barefoot? Ever seen Dual Survival on discovery channel? The dude Cody who is from AZ says he hasn't worn shoes in like 18 years?? And they go to some gnarly ass places on that show and he still isn't wearing shoes

When Ive tried to work out barefoot before I felt like I was going to injure myself a lot easier.
