When I took boxing, it was during the summer in a really hot and humid climate. I used to get really bad cramps in my calves until I started focusing on getting some nutrients to replenish what I sweat out, rather than just water. That was a really intense workout that was literally draining me, but you could simply be lacking something in your day to day diet that is setting you up for cramps later. You can try and Google "nutrition for foot cramps" or something similar. I ended up getting a few packs of hydration tablets to drop in my water bottle (kind of like Gatorade without all the sugar and bs) and that seemed to help. Not completely sure if that will help but it's worth looking into.

Very often it's a lack of magnesium. But as you don't get it at night but during your workout, it can be lack of salt (natrium) or potassium.

I don't lack nothing Heiko everything's alright.It seems I have to start stretches and some Yoga again to make my tendons grow a little bit more flexible and used to new moves.Thanks for the info anyway :)

As they said above me, it's most likely nutrients you are missing.

Another tip I can give is to also look into the foot itself. What I would advice is to 'roll' the downside of your feet with a small ball or pvc pipe. This to kind of relax your feet and get some of the build up tension out of it. Next to this it would be advice to work on the flexion of your ankle. Specially plantar flexion of your ankle. The cramping of your feet could have to do with you missing some range of motion in the ankle. And because of this you can't relax your feet while swimming.
