toe pain

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi. Im skiing with 3 other people. We are all complaining about our big toes hurting really badly all day from skiing. We didnt remember that it hurts that bad. Is it something with the boot? Perhaps we arent leaning to the front enough? Should we change boots, or because its the 3 of us with the same problem then it doesnt have to do with the boots?

If you don't or can't tighten the ankle buckle of the boot---and if you lean against the back of the cuff of the boots, your feet will slide forward in the liner/shell and bang your toes:eek:hopmad: ouch!!!

 

The answer then seems to be---tighten the ankle buckle to hold your heels/toes back (second from top on a 4 buckle boot) if your boot has one---take a lesson and get out of the back seat.:cool.

Mike is right, except you said the magic word "rental"..  Which also probably connects to the words learning skiing.

 

Yes more likely stay more forward and more importantly buy boots that fit.  rentals don't fit anyone unless you have a EEE foot.
