cold toes

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I bought a pair of Rossi Zenith s3's last year & had myself fitted with custom insta print footbeds. I love the way the boots feel & the footbeds make them feel & ski even better. The only problem is that my toes are freezing cold & a little numb - I guess due to lack of circulation. I had heel lifters put in ( I'm not sure the exact height - but the guy in the shop said they were the in the middle) & this helped a little but not completely. Should I try a higher heel lift? Thanks, C.

I try not to use heel lifts to fix problems like yours because they also affect stance.  You need to go back to the shop and work with them to determine the pressure point.

the heel lift was originally our in because I was having difficulty pressuring the front of the boot to control the tips of my skis. It just so happened that it relieved a little of the numbness in my toes.

Did it help you pressure the tips?  Often it works just the opposite and makes it more likely to sit back.

Yes - it did help. I used to have a pair of Salomon Impacts & the boot was angled a bit more forward. The Rossi"s have more of a neutral stance to them. It has taken a little while to get used to & I think the heel lift did help some. I'm going to take the boots to my boot fitter & see if he can tweak it. Thnks, C.
