What are you wearing for footwear? And what size/type of kayak? Whats the outfitting for your feet?
One reason I like creekers and river runners is because I can wear shoes with a decent sole (just old running shoes; I suppose I should get some river shoes someday). My heels used to get sore if I wore thinner neoprene, or even the thicker neoprene booties (similar to NRS Men's Paddle Wetshoes, but an older model). I like having a running shoe sole under my heel.
Nowadays I also wear the water resistant Foot Leveler orthotics in my river shoes. They really help my arches and knees, especially when carrying a creeker for any distance.
I like some foam on the foot brace, like the standard layer that comes with LL Remix 79. That, plus a running shoe sole, really helps if you piton, as well as general comfort (doesn't help the heel tho, more of the underfoot comfort). The Jackson bulkhead is the best I have used for piton cushion; heavy though.
