I have been having some trouble with my boots such that sometimes, by the time I reach the top of the lift, I cannot feel my foot from the top of my ankle down. It is not painful, or even overly tingly, but the best way I can describe the feeling is that my foot is not there. I think about moving my toes, but I get no feedback saying whether or not they actually moved. Obviously you cannot ski confidently in that condition so I completely unbuckle my boot and after a minute or two, feeling returns. I would say that my boots are too tight, but it is not a consistent problem. Some days, I leave my boots cranked down the entire evening without a problem, others I have to loosen the middle two buckles, others I have to take off all of the buckles. That would not be too much of a problem, but some days, I cycle through all of those phases and still cannot find a way to maintain feeling on the lift.
I have Tecnica Diablo Hot Form boots with a custom cork foot bed that were fitted by a reputable local fitter. However, they are not overly convienent to visit, so I only want to go if I know it can be fixed. This will be my second season in the boots.
Any ideas as to what may be causing the loss of feeling?
