Cold feet with Technica Inferno Blaze ? Blisters from Intuition Pro Tongue liners?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Are cold feet a common issue with Technica Infreno Blaze boots? I have had terribly cold feet in a wide variety of  temperatures.

 

Got some Intuition Pro Tongue liners that keep the feet warm, but I have been getting blisters on lower shin just above ankle. Tried a variety of sock weights, also moleskin padding- with marginal success.

 

So it appears my options are:

  • go back to stock liner (and cold feet)
  • Stick w/ the ProTongue and keep experimenting with padding
  • Buy new boots

 

 

I have low volume feet, high arch and skinny leg shaft.

Suggestions?

jamero,

 

     Blisters, are an indicator that your foot is moving around inside the liner, first I would suggest you do a "shell check" to find out if the boot is the right size to fit your foot.  Shell check is described in "Which boot should work for me" WIKI at the top of "Ask the boot guy's" section.

 

     If the boot is the right size, you could get the liner remolded around the ankle area and be sure to tighten the buckle around your ankle to hold your heel still and back inside the boot.

 

Footbeds?

i am with Mike on this, blisters are normally a sign of heat friction and moisture

you say you have

tecnica is not exactly known for low volume boots (with the exception of their race models) so there may just be too much volume in the back end of the boot for your foot/leg even if the boot is the correct length 

 

take a look when you do the shell check to see how much space there is around the foot /ankle area if there is loads then it may be best to start form scratch, but as Mike said, read the Wiki and go to a good fitter armed with the information

I haven't sold Tecnicas in a few years but when I did I used it well for high instep feet so I'm with these guys.
