If your feet are uncomfortable in your ski boots it can reduce your skiing enjoyment and potentially spoil your holiday. That’s why if you’re intending to ski on an annual basis, we advocate owning your own ski boots and investing in a Profeet custom fit!
Managing arch pain
There are multiple factors to consider to stop cramping or a burning sensation under the arch of your foot in your ski boots.
It could be that you are fundamentally in the wrong size boot. It’s important to check your size to ensure that it’s not too big or too small.
Typically, when the boot is too big you end up clawing your feet to try and secure yourself and gain control which can often cause cramping. If the boot is too small, it will result in crushing and put pressure on the foot often cutting of circulation leading to cramping and cold feet.
2) Check the shell for contact points
It is also important to check the foot in the shell for any contact points around the foot which could create a problem. Shells can be customised to fit imperfections in your feet such as bone spurs and bunions, relieving pressure points and improving fit.
Once the size and shape of the boot has been eliminated as possible factors, at the Profeet Ski Lab we would look at flexibility and alignment of the foot.
