Ankle and foot pain from boots

I started skiing for the first time this year and I love the sport! Iím trying to find out why my rented ski boots are so uncomfortable each week. Iíve tried three different boot sizes and still have severe ankle and foot pain. This might also explain why my performance declines as the day goes on. I'm sure that part of the problem is that I have a slightly pronated foot and the rented boot is not fitted for me personally and that probably has worn out padding and support. I asked one of the kids working the rental shop and they said that I could try a ďspacerĒ next week. Any ideas on what I can do to make the my rental boots more comfortable and thus my skiing experience more enjoyable?

Unfortunately rental boots will never be as comfortable as getting your own pair of fitted boots. If your seriously going to start skiing every year it might be worth investing in a good pair of ski boots. After all spending around £300 will ensure you will have fun all day every day. Fischer have just brought out a boot that is vacuum fitted, a little bit pricier but you will get a completely customised boot. Welcome to the sport!
