So I just picked up new Dalbello Boss last year from a local store, been on them about 6-8 times now. I'm still getting extreme toe jamming during glade skiing with significant pain to my toes while on mountain.
Last year I bruised my toes early, mostly glad skiing, had to have one nail completely removed.
This year, back to Jay Peak/Smuggs this week and it happened again. I hold my own in the glades, yes there are times I get back on my heels and hit some bumps. I ski with friends at similar if not exact expertise levels and they don't have any issue with the toes jamming.
I should note the boots are extremely snug, so I cannot imagine it's too much room in the toe box. I've played with the tension of the straps and buckles to hold my feet from moving to no avail. My left toenail is back to me needing to go to the doctor to get it removed.
So I'm looking for some advice here, the shop I purchased from has a lifetime guarantee, however I've learned they are not experience bootfitters and haven't been much help on this front. I've been back 3 times already, with minimal work done to liner and some footbeds.
I feel like after this amount of time and wear through the glades that they should be packed out by now. One may say too much room but I can barely wiggle my toes standing straight up and in aggressive position on groomers they feel great.
Should I try a new boot, or put some more effort into getting these right?. Can a half size too small also contribute to this type of condition?
Any help on this would be much appreciated, thanks in advance.
