Topic - Pressure Points on Feet in B3 Boots

bowls - on 29 Dec 2013
I am currently on my second pair of B3 boots - my first being Scarpa Freney's, I have recently purchased La Sportiva Nepal Evo GTX'

With the Freney's - towards the end of a day I would have really bad aches on the ball of my feet, which after 2-3 days would be so painful I would stock up on paracetamol/ibuprofen for the walk off. I tried the Evo's yesterday (only for a few hours on hilly terrain) and could feel pressure points again - more this time on the outside of the foot..

As a general question - is this just part and parcel of wearing B3 boots that what you gain for the climb you pay for during the walk in/particularly the walk off? Any ideas what I can do to minimise? I have tried Sorbothane. Perhaps it is down to the shape of my feet - I have a very high arch which doesn't help..
