Specific question here. When I am hiking on the approach, the outer part of my right foot hurts so bad after about 2 hours that I can barely go on. It is always in the same spot, and I have tried inserts, heat molding my boots, new size, etc. Any ideas what may be happening? And how I may fix it? Thanks!!!

It turns out that I had a Morton’s Neuroma in my right foot. I have a write up somewhere on this board but you can look it up on the internet to see if the typical Morton’s Neuroma symptoms match your symptoms: Here is an example: https://www.foothealthfacts.org/conditions/morton-s-neuroma-(intermetatarsal-neuroma) Since my neuroma was “advanced”, I ended up having the neuroma surgically removed (the tumor was 0.9 inches by 0.3 inches). Other than wearing shoes with a larger toe box, my recovery was complete. In less advanced cases, wearing boots with a roomier toe box and thinner socks can make a big difference. In any case, I would recommend seeing a sports podiatrist that it is familiar with ski boot injuries (the injury is more common with skiers because of the tight fitting boots….or women in high heels with a tight toe box) Good luck on your search and recovery.

The best thing you could do is to wear always wide boots, and go to a good boot fitter and make your boots. To me, the AT boots or hard boots are better, because a good boot fitter can make all the space you need for your metatarsals and be comfortable again. I don’t think there’s a real solution with normal snowboard boots, despite of sizing up and use a good soles like the Shred Soles or a podiatrist soles. If you are in pain, I would suggest to visit a podiatrist and buy a Magnetobox or any kind of magneto therapy machine. It will help a lot and probably solve the problem. This machines are 600-1000€ but they worth every € they cost. world is our playground. keep it clean. Viewing 3 posts - 1 through 3 (of 3 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
