Hey guys, this is my first official post but I've spent a great deal of time sorting through the forums. Its helped me a lot with tricks on skiing better as well as picking out boots. That being said, I need some further help in fitting into my boots and get to a pain free ski experience.
I recently purchased an older model of the dalbello Cross because they were on sale at the local ski shop. The shop had a competent boot fitter that had helped a great deal with the compression on the front half of my foot. What was happening was after a run or two, the front half of my foot, from just behind the bone protrusion (sorry I'm not very technical with feet vocab) forward, would numb out and start hurting from lack of blood flow. After taking off my boots and socks to alleviate the problem, the toes would often be dark red or slightly purplish. My boot fitter had opened up boot laterally and taken some of the pressure off and it seemed to help.
The current problem is that the boots are still compressing my feet vertically too much, and my usual boot fitter won't be available to modify it in time for my next trip. I'm not sure if they still need to be broken in, but they've been on the mountain 2 full days. Is there any home fix I can do to help with this? I have about 2 days time before I go up again, if any solution requires time for the liner to stretch out or something.
If anyone can offer any advice or help, that'd be greatly appreciated :]
