SETTIMIA....New boots or old, I agree with a previous poster who suggested it might be the beginnings of plantar fasciitis. When I got it, it was from new boots with athletic inserts to help them "fit better". **Unfortunately** those inserts didn't fit ME right!! The particular brand was too narrow in the heel for my weirdly shaped foot! (I was unconsciously twisting my foot not to step on them...) Oh Pain--For about six weeks....
If it continues, I would suggest A) abandon wearing the boots ASAP B) consult your doctor for advice on treatment. I ended up with a podiatrist actually: we taped my foot; iced it; Ibuprofen'ed it; got properly fitted inserts (over the counter ones for about $30.00...), and fortunately it healed up without cortisone injections or night braces, etc. And yes, I still wear those boots!! LOL
Hope you solve this quickly, and are able to find boots/inserts which are comfortable. Walking and hiking is so wonderful...when it doesn't hurt!!
