I have since learned that, where my feet are concerned, good blood circulation is paramount to comfort. I haven't had a problem since.
Actually, I think I first found out that "good circulation is the key to foot comfort" in these forums when I was reading a thin vs. thick ski sock debate. It has worked for me.
Well, that's definitely true, too. (Circulation)
The way you said it just reminded me of my son complaining about his hands and feet being cold, when he refuses to wear a heavy-enough jacket on a cold day. "My back isn't cold, my feet are!" I think he's finally figured it out, though ...
My feet are always cold, and it is
a circulation issue. I've gotten too used to it ... they get numb and I don't worry about it (b/c I can't feel them), and then I take off my boots and realize they take 4 hours to thaw out. Probably not the best plan of action.
