I bought a new pair "Salomon Energyzer 80" about 2 seasons ago. I had them fitted and after a few days i was having problems with my ankle rubbing off the casing. I was advised to get in-soles to stop my foot falling in and my ankle rubbing. As I had my boots fitted snugly this in-sole made my right boot quite tight as my foot was higher in the boot. I rebroke the boots in and it seemed to fix the problem.
Unfortunately my boots are causing me problems recently in cold conditions. I am skiing in Korea at the moment and the temperatures here are as cold as -20 degrees celsius. Two days ago I skied for about 8 hours with a half hour break. My feet were cold but not particularly sore throughout the day. When I took my boots off at the end of the day my feet had white pressure marks all over and my toes were all red (maybe a mix of the tight boots and the cold). When the blood came back into my feet the pain was excruciating, my feet swelled up and my toes went numb. Two days later and I still have a numbness at the tip of my toes.
Is this a common problem with boots and do you have any advice on what I can do? Why does this problem occur only in cold conditions? Should I take my boots off when I rest? I know boots should be tight but is this too tight?
I hope the information I have given you can help you give me some effective advice. Thank you for taking the time to read my thread and I hope you can help me.
