Different foot board hardness in FT
So yeah, I've recently had some pain in my left arch while skiing.. Boots are full tilt hot doggers, the red ones. So I thought that I would examine the boots a little to see if there was any difference between the two, and when removing my boot boards I realized that the left one (the foot hurting) is way more stiff/hard than the right one.
The letter on the left one is "S" and "D" on the right one.
Could this be the cause of pain? Is it supposed to be like this? What should I do?
Arch cramping will not have to do with the boot board hardness (it is weird that you have a soft in one and a hard in another though) but due to lack of arch support.
It is common for one foot to be comfortable and one to be in pain. No two feet are the same, including your own, and they expand and contract differently due to differences in foot length, arch length, midfoot flexibility, ankle mobility, and so on.
The best thing to do is go see a good boot-fitter and have him/her check out your feet and get some good foot-beds. Then get your boot board situation figured out.
