My feet have been kind of cold the last few weeks. I thought maybe I was just getting old with poor circulation, but I noticed that when I took out the liner that there was a bunch of snow packed into the toe area. There was also some snow around the top of my forefoot on the outside of the liner. The toe area of my liner was wet. It was the same on both boots.
I figured put some duct tape around the front of the boot right before the first buckle, because I figured that might be where snow was coming in. I also tried tightening the forefoot buckles a little more (usually I have left them pretty loose).
I took them apart today after i got home from skiing for a few hours and there is still water in there. I doubt it's all perspiration. It was wet around the toe, and under the bottom of the liner.
The plastic on the forefoot of this boot is extremely flexible and not the same as the rest of the shell. I'm wonder if maybe when I flex or turn in a certain way if there is enough of a gap for snow to get in.
I'm not sure what to do, or if there is anything I can do. Do I just need to look at new boots? Ski only when it is dry out? Or something else. I don't really know why this would be happening.
