Mine never fully healed last year so they look pretty gnar this Spring. My big toenails are hanging on for now but just barely. Hiking should finish them off soon. How did everyone's toes fare this season?
Lost the big right toenail... for the third straight season. The left I thought was okay but looked a little mangled, then bumped it into something the other day and a big chip came loose, so I think it may be a goner after all.
Three straight seasons of breaking in new ski boots.
Now that it's flip flop season, every now and then my wife notices my toes and makes a disgusted face.
I lost the hair off my shins a couple times this season. Other than that my feet usually fair very well as long as I don't get a dreaded sock kink. Never lost a toenail even when I skied 100 day seasons. But then my boots were usually too big back then.
I don't think I'd lose mine if I gave them a long enough break to totally heal which just isn't going to happen. I thankfully got good boots recently that I could wear around my house they are so comfortable but between hiking and skiing the big toes just don't hold up.

Thank goodness for Keens. I no longer have to scare women and small children all summer.
Sandle pics are OK, but any nasty toe pics and I'm unsubscribing!
What does the doc do when you go in to get them "fixed" ? I'm considering that route next summer if I have issues again.
I honestly try not to watch. After they numb your toe, they cut out/trim the ingrown portion of the nail. It's basically what I always attempt on my own but can't accomplish because it hurts so much.
This was the first year I didn't wait till I was limping in pain for 3 weeks before getting it taken care of.
