losing another toenail

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Had a nice easy first day of the season at breck today, somehow managed to do a little wipe-out on the easist slope on the last run of the day.  As soon as I felt the pain in my right big toe I knew I'd slammed my foot and popped another toenail.  I've since drained it but it'll probably fall off anyway.

 

I've read the posts that suggest the boot is too big, allowing slop, but I think my right foot is the bigger one.  Since this is day 1 of 10, should I have someone local check my fit?  I live in the Ft. Lauderdale area so a refit when I get back might not even be tested until next year.  I'm tired of losing toenails!

whats the worst that someone says?  why not go talk to someone,  a quick consult is usually cheap, and will give you lots of info

Fair enough.  Need a recommendation in the Silverthorne area, we plan to ski Keystone, copper and probably a-basin.

Somewhere there is a list attached to this forum with the locations of everyone here.  You could also read the Wikis and probably figure some of this out yourself.  But just to know what size is your boot in Mondo or boot sole length, what is the model and what shoe size do you wear?

I'll see if I can find that list.  I do have terrible feet for sports, they're flat and huge, size 14-15 in a street shoe.  The boots are Head edge +9, the liners are 30.0 and the shells say "349mm" and the inside is stamped with "Edge 07 TG 30 DX".  I thought these were 30.5 but maybe they are 30?  On the bright side the bubbled out areas around pressure points I had around my ankle seem to be working out so far.
