Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

What causes this pain?

My boots have always been on the snug side and give me numb toes if i wear thick socks, but are ok with thin socks on.

However the one boot catches me on the top of the foot, but i can explain away that one. The other boot however, is fine when walking but once skiing i get a pain down the outside edge of my foot.

It's almost as if there's not enough support on that side and my muscles are contracting to 'support' the foot. It bl**dy hurts after a while anyway Mad

Does this sound possible? They've got superfeet in them, but i feel a trip to see CEM is in order to get it sorted.

jazzy, thin socks are the way forward!

as for the other pains there are a number of possible causes, the pain on the top of the foot could just be cuased by to much volume [of foot and footbed etc] inside the boot, it may just need a minor alteration to remove pressure from the top of the foot. the pain on the outside edge of the foot when skiing can again be from anumber of things, one being as you suggest not enough support under the lateral side of the foot, the other more common cause is a lack for flexion at the ankle joint, when the skis are attacehd and the leverage is increased this causes your foot to rotate into the side of the boot, calf stretches may help or a heel lift in your boot to help give you a little bit more usable range of motion

hope that helps a bit
