My peroneus longus or perooneus brevis?
For over a year I have been using full tilt classics. I obviously purchased them because I would be able to do more spins. That's not why. I went to a boot-fitter, he recommended me these boots and so I got them properly fitted. Note--I have not purchased a foot bed.
The first week or so my legs were in so much pain I had to stop skiing and leave the mountain. I played around with the lining of the boot and reversed one of the side flaps over the other. By doing this the pain vanished, however at the end of the skiing season the outside part of both calfs, about low middle to high middle started to hurt.
In the area of---Peroneus longus/brevis area of the calf as well as the tibialis anterior muscle and extensor hallucis longus.
These muscles and tendons have been hurting for almost a year and sometimes I get a sharp pain under my foot, feels almost like a muscle tear and I have to jump up and down to relieve the pain. It won't fucking go away!
I ski ice.
My full tilts hurt like a mother fucker when I first broke them in. Got em right before I went out west and they hurt like a bitxh and I couldn't ski
You are activating the muscle down the side of your leg to much. This can be caused by a few things. You may be leaning back more then you think. You may be lifting the heel or you may just be pronating in the boot. You defiantly need to start with a good custom footbed to get your foot into a neatral position and it sounds like a heel lift built onto the footbed may help to. Hopeful this will stop the muscles activating so much. As for the pain in the base of the foot that is presumably a nerve issue caused by not having the foot surported in neutral. If I ha to guess I would say the spn on top if the foot, which would further indicate your heel lifting.
I am always forward in my boots, unless i'm sitting down to get some speed. And my boots are very snug and tight; that is that my heel stays in place. It could however be my foot pronating in the boot. I do have a slight sailor stance.
I can purchase a custom footbed at a bootfitter. correct?
+k thank you very much.
I ski ice.
You may be still slightly backseat without knowing. How much forward flex do you have? A tight achilles can effect forward lean, so a heel lift still may be needed.
But start with a footbed yes. A good fitter will be able to make them for you. Get a sidas if you can.
My achilles is not tight. I will go get a custom footbed though.
And by forward flex do you mean the boot's flex, if so. I have a six flex in regards to Full Tilt guide. Very soft...I weigh 145 and i'm very forward in my boot just by putting weight on the cuffs.
I ski ice.
No I mean how far you can flex forward. Sometimes when you combine a limited flex with a soft boot like you have that could cause issues.
But overall I think you just need to start with a footbed. Full tilt are really bad for your feet without footbeds as the liner offers no airport an can leave your foot in a very weird position.
