I've been a skiier for about 32 years. Unfortunately, I don't get to go as often as I'd like. I have ALWAYS had a problem with finding some good comfortable boots. My left foot is a bit longer than my right so when I was a young hot-dog and doing a lot of jumping, my left big toe would ram to the end of the boot when I'd land and eventually, my toenail would turn black, fall off and about the time it would grow back, it would be a year later and I'd go skiing and repeat the process.
I'm about to take my 2 girls out to Colorado to teach them how to ski and I need a new pair of boots. If I'm going on a 4 day ski trip, the last thing I want is to have feet that are soooo sore after the first day that it ruins the rest of my trip. I don't want to rent boots because I rented equipment in Chamonix and after about 4 hours, the friction rubbing against my legs.... I had a visual of my calves and ankles being raw bloody stumps with chunks of flesh hanging off of them. Of course they were just red and sore, but that's what it felt like.
What is the most comfortable pair of boots that you've owned and what should I look for in a new pair to ensure that I will be happy.
Thanks in advance.
