Ok, picked up my first set of boots last year. Decided on Falcon CS Pro's after trying different boots at several ski shops in Austin. I later had the boots heat molded at Loveland and they agreed that they were the correct size/fit. They measured and did a shell fit as well. I have no pain points but my feet none the less fall asleep and tingle/hurt within the first run or two. Is this normal for a new boot? It bothered me enough that I rented boots after 2 runs down the mountain this trip. The prior trip I skied with them for 1.5 days. I normally have bad circulation and I'm curious if this is also a factor.
Boots putting feet to sleep?

your bad circulation is almost certainly a factor, but prehaps not the cause, do you have a custom insole in the boot? how tightly are you doing the clips above the foot?
does the problem go away if you undo the lower two clips? how are you clippng the boot up... i would start with the ankle clip, tighten this then do the upper one and the powe strap, now flex a few times and losely fasten the lower two making sure the one over the instep is not trapping anything below, if that doesn't fix it then first thing i would look at is getting support under the foot, this will equalize any pressure coming downwards form the clips and enable you to not buckle them tightly and still have control.
other factors could be a lack of flexion at the ankle or a nerve entrapment somewhere on the foot, but without seeing the feet it is impossibel to tell what may be going on
good luck getting sorted
