My only problem with these boots was/is cold toes. I never ran into this in my too-big Garmonts. And it persisted when I swapped in Intuition Powerwrap liners and heat molded them (with proper toe caps in place). On cold days (rare in CO last season) I could only ski 2 hours or so before needing a warm up break or risk losing all feeling. I regularly skied the boot with only the top two buckles latched, only lightly latching the bottom two when I got into more serious terrain or the end of the day.
I'm wondering if the narrow (98mm) last might be cutting off circulation leading to cold toes? If so, is a punch or two in the toe box a realistic solution to cold feet, or is the only answer new boots? Given that this is my only big problem with the boot (I'd like a walk mode for some light touring I do) I'm hoping to get one last season out of them. Else its time to look for a replacement boot... I hear the Lange XT is the same mold as my Rossi's and has good reviews.
Appreciate any thoughts.
