OK. I've been dealing with this for a while and think I've been going about it the wrong way. I've been thinking my feet have been sweating up a storm in my ski boots (which may very well be true), but so far, everything I've tried doesn't work with regards to preventing it. For two weeks now I've been putting antiperspirant on before bed and in the morning; daily. My feet don't sweat with regular shoes on, my wife has never complained of me having stinky feet or shoes (I assure you, she would) but within an hour of skiing, my toes are wet and start getting cold. This has happened on stupid cold days and when it is unseasonably warm (like this weekend - high 40s).
I was starting to think that maybe all the stars are lining up in a bad way. I've never like having my feet "hot". Even the slippers I wear at home are open heel so I don't get too hot. At the same time, I tend to have cold feet and hands (drive my wife bananas). But maybe my boots are too warm and I really am sweating more than my antiperspirant can handle. At this point, I'm really starting to guess.
So, how do you prove one way or another if your boots are leaking water/snow in? Someone else has posted here about them putting a bead of silicone on these boots to prevent water getting in. Maybe I need to do that but I would really like to resolve this before the weather turns cold again.
Any insight or suggestions greatly appreciated.
