When skiing in colder weather with these boots, my toes get cold after a couple of hours or so of skiing. Originally I was led to believe it was a circulation issue but ultimately determined the problem is temperature related. When skiing in the 20 degrees or so and higher temperature, my feet generally do not get cold. It's only when I'm skiing powder or on windy, cold days that my toes get cold after a couple of hours of skiing. I have had a bunch of boot fit work done, based on the boot fitters belief that it was a circulation issue. As a result, the boots fit like a glove but, generally in the winter part of the season, I'm fighting the cold toes problem and in the spring I have no problems. I have skied with the lower buckles loose and cranked up, and it doesn't seem to make a difference. The only additional comment is that, when the boots were fairly new and I skied them with the lower buckles loose as recommended by the shop where I bought them, I found some snow and ice on top of the front end of the liner when I pulled it from the shell (apparently it got in through the shell overlap). Any thoughts or suggestions? I'm desperate, although now I'm generally not having the problem because it's now spring. I called Salomon and they did not have any suggestions and gave me the impression that my problem was unique to me.
