I just went riding today. And wow my feet was in pain. The worst it's been. My toes were so numb, it felt like needles or felt it was on fire.
I hope the new boots will work better. If not , than I'll need to do these mods

You're in too big boots (as I read in another thread). Too big leads to problems anyway... get proper size first. Solve one problem after the other (like if you have wide feet, get a boot model for wide feet in right size, not bigger size). Too big means bad heel hold, slipping around etc. All this one tries to compendate by overtightening laces and/or bindings, which in turn leads to cut off circulation. Downward spiral. Right size first. IF you cannot find a boot model which fits your personal foot anatomy even tho it's the right size, and presses on your arch even if not overtightened, then it's time to modify. But first look into right size.

The mods here are meant for boots which are in the right size but bug one even tho it's the right size.

Btw: if I forgot to mention: right size first :)

Makes sense.

I don't think I have high arched feet.
I'm glad u found a solution

Wet your feet,.. stand with your weight on a piece of cardboard/paper. If the only wet marks are the balls of your feet and your heel? You've got high arches. (...and likely a high instep.)

Or watch the marks you leave on a sand beach <img src="http://www.snowboardingforum.com/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />.

You knew I had to try immediately, right?



However, even a flat foot can have pressure marks on the top on the foot (hubby has flat bulky hobbit feet, and gets the same numbness in his 32...) and also then, one way or another, that pressure needs to be removed. I'll unthread his liners, too. And if that won't help already, the cutting a whole from the other thread will be the next step, as for his flat feet, cutting the sole in pieces isn't something I'd consider as he'd feel the cut rim. I don't cos my feet are do hollow, they hardly touch the sole in that part.
Hey Neni. I just picked up some super blues for my Tm-twos. I do notice that the heel cup for the super feet blues are really wide, significantly wider than the stock Footbed. Did you run into any issues on fitting it in the liner? Any tips on cutting it up to match? Sorry this is my first time buying aftermarket insoles. Thanks!

In one liner, I use the cut down 32 insole, in the other boot, I use a custom insole which is a bit wider thsn the iriginal at the heel, but with some pushing thst one slips into its place. Didn't have to mod anything. Can't you push it into the liner? Maybe try with heat molding to get space.

Superfeet Blue. And J bars.

I get the same problem in almost all my boots. My feet would go dead in a matter of munutes from the lack of circulation. Narrow feet but slightly high arch... the blues drop my instep a bit to relieve pressure, but offer great support. The C or J's hold my heel tight.

Love the 32 liners because they have a lot of volume and are pretty stiff but comfy.
I saw on another thread that you say you like the 32 insoles. Are you still using the blues right now? I'm getting the same pressure, and I've been using the blues and I can't tell if they're helping or the tm-twos are just breaking in. I'm curious to see what will happen if I put the default insoles back in.

Hi Hi! I'm new and I think I might be suffering the same thing from your wife. I don't feel much of a numb or needles... But I feel superb Burning Pain sensation inside my arch and forefoot (balls of feet). I am not sure if mine is the same issue as your wife, or do I suffer from Plantar Fasciitis or both issue. My left foot is very very very milf flat foot, but somewhat normal arch, and my ride foot is mild flat foot (sliding more towards the flat foot side).

Any inputs/advice would be appreciated please. Photos are as shown. 1st image shows my veins and subsequent ones are the pressure point with redness. I put a padding on my instep to show where it compresses. I really hope to resolve this BURNING PAIN I am feeling
