Are Nordica Ski Boots renowned for letting in snow?!?I bought some Nordica ski boots new in Apr 2003 and have used them for about 3 weeks in the years since. My feet have always been cold in them and I thought that was just my feet. However, in Chamonix this New Year I was virtually unable to ski because my feet were so painfully cold and I realised that they are letting in snow! Which then melts if I go into a cafe (which is necessary to warm my feet before my toes drop off), and then there's no hope with wet feet - the inners certainly aren't waterproof.
It seems to be coming in right at the front and possibly up the sides. If I tighten the boots it happens less, but then they're just extremely uncomfortable and cut off the blood supply making my feet cold anyway.
Clearly they shouldn't let snow in on any setting, but since they're almost 3 years old, I'd be curious to discover if there is a known problem with any Nordica boots before I take the matter to Nordica. Also, are inners supposed to be waterproof in case snow does get in? I can't take them back to the shop because it's the other side of the world.
Thanks everso much to anyone who can help or point me in the right direction.
