freestyler540No, boots have very little to do with shin bang.
Shin bang is a term used in freeskiing to describe a burning feeling on the back of your leg when you wear your ski boots. Pain is localized to the top end of the boot and increases as you fall back on your heels.
Shin bang is caused by one (or several) landing to the backseat. The boot will act as a balance point of a teeter tooter, causing excessive pressure on the shin bone. Repetitive backseat skiing will only lead to acute pain and possible shin splints (bumps running up and down the shin bone).
Solution to shin bang is correct positioning. You should be center forward on your skis at all times and never go backseat. Take a lesson or tape yourself while skiing, this might improve technique. Applying constant pressure on the tongue of the boot will increase reaction time, better control, more stability and no possibility of shin bang.
i was a long sufferer of shin back in my teen years. My boots were not the right size, I was backseat in the moguls frequently and shinbang would end my days of training. My coach spent a few days correcting position and since that day, I have never had a bad case of shin bang.

GNARSHRALPERI have started not landing as backseat but it didn't help. it feels like my right boot is too low on my shin and it hurts when I try push my shins forwards when I'm trying to carve.
