Boot issues
« on: March 25, 2019, 01:49:27 PM »
Hello

New to this forum. I hope this is not a stupid question.

My daughter (14 years old, elite skater with up to triple loop) has been using Risport boots for the past 3-4 years with no issue whatsoever. We had to buy a new pair beginning of February (RF1 (exclusive), those are the exact same boots she had the year before. Everything went fine for the first month and then one day, with no particular event, she could not put the boot back on because of some pain above the ankle bone on the exterior side (right foot).

Went to Dr., physio, foot specialist and everybody tells me her feet is fine and that she is describing friction pain. So went back to the store, they modified the tongue, claiming that it was rubbing on the bone, and added some padding in the tongue to. For the first 2 days after that she skated completely pain free (I though it was a miracle) and on the 3rd day, the pain was back. So we went back again and they explain that the extra padding had flattened out and added more and a little more rigid. Boots were fine in the store, she was doing the moves that usually hurts her and no pain, she was also just off the ice so her foot was already 'in pain'.....

Next day when she put them back on, the pain is back.....

I am discourage, I am not sure what i should do next....
Any advice or ideas or same story sharing would be helpful....

Many many thanks.

Many years ago, I had what I thought was pain from the top of my boot.  Padding seemed to help at first, but then it was back and just got worse.  Turned out to be a stress fracture.  Might be worth exploring that possibility...?
Returned to the ice in Sept 2017 after a major leg injury in 1999. Skating in Graf Dance boots and MK Dance blades. It's still a bit slippery...

Could also be tendonitis.  (My stress fracture only showed up in a nuclear scan.  They're tricky things.)
