Why are footboards / zeppas cut short at toes?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Both my wife and I have new Lange ski boots, different models and our feet get cold quickly.  Both are boot-fitters fit, very snug which is perfect.  I noticed on both boots, the footboards are cut right around where our toes would extend past the footboard.  Would this contribute to getting cold toes?  Is there an option to fill in the last inch or so?

 

thanks

I doubt the bootboard is playing a role in your cold toe issues?    An inexpensive solution is a product call "Boot Gloves" which are neoprene covers that fit over the outside of your shells and attach with a velcro strap.  They do a good job of keeping a shell that starts out warm, warmer, as they insulate it from the cold.

 

Cold feet, unfortunately can have a variety of causes of which your boot fitter can help you assess and address.  A warm boot to one person could be a cold boot to another.

Any ideas why the bootboard would be cut short?  All my other boots they fill in to the end?  Would adding something underneath the toe area help with keeping toes warm?

you could try sticking foil tape onto the bottom of the liner, may keep the toes a little warmer but Lange is a big seller for us, never had anyone say they are any colder than any other boot
