Do you suffer foot pain while skiing?
Many people suffer foot pain while skiing and simply accept it as a burden of enjoying a sport they love. This is often caused by ski boots that don’t fit properly. Beyond pain, boots that don’t support the feet appropriately can cause a loss in performance on the hill. Sliding down the side of a mountain with control and smooth turns can be difficult when you are favoring tender toes or an aching arch.
My boots seem to fit, so why do my feet hurt?
When you are walking, your foot is flexible and naturally adapts position to reduce shock to the leg, knee and back. The foot is in the same position when it is buckled inside the hard shell of a ski boot — which can cause foot pain and loss of turning efficiency.
In a ski turn the foot must bear a load up of to three times your body weight. Boot fit problems and foot pain can occur as the foot is forced to flatten — causing pressure of the foot against the boot shell. Because the foot is flexible, the muscles and tendons of the foot are “fighting back” to resist the flattening of the arch, causing aching in the arch and mid-foot. The obvious cure for this foot pain is to provide more support for the foot inside the boot.
