I'm not sure if this is the correct place for this post so I apologize if its not.

I have recently done some long hikes and developed some foot pain on the outside of my left foot.

I have new shoes now (Saloman Xd ultra w/ Superfeet)but a did a couple of my last hikes in some old Saloman gortex trail runners I had and Im sure thats the reason for the pain.

Here is a pic of where my pain is and I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this type of pain? and what I can do? Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure this is much help, but I developed pain along with swelling in the same area of my left foot three weeks into starting a new running program. I was worried it might be a fracture or pulled muscle, but I took two weeks off of running / hiking and my foot completely recovered.

Watch the Video Foot Doctor @ about 2:45.

I'd guess an injury to the Tendon of Peroneous Brevis or Peroneous Longus Muscle but I'm not a doctor and you shouldn't consider my comment as a medical diagnosis or advice....

I just wanted to report on the foot pain in case anyone happens on this thread that has the issues.

I read somewhere about stretching your calf muscles really good before and after hiking and after I started doing this the pain in that location on my foot went away completely. Thats without resting or taking any time off, etc.

Hope that can work for everyone.
