When you get new boots it seems you're supposed to wear them around the house for a bit.
Am I supposed to be identifying pressure points ?
Or letting the liners compress/adjust to my feet a bit ?
And what am I supposed to do?
Stand in them? Flex? Sleep?
(I tried some dancing on new years eve but it was quite noisy)
Should I be keeping them on for 8hrs straight even if my feet stop tingling and go limp? Or should it be for an hour at a time?
If I sit in them whilst I work or watch TV (ie with no weight) I have noticed that my feet begin to tingle and I think the circulation is a bit cut off. If I then get up and "adopt the stance", the blood starts to flow and the pressure on the top of my foot goes away.
I think this is a good sign but I'm glad I'm not in an office.
What do I do if there's a pressure spot?
On the first day? (I guess "grin and bear it")
After 3 days? (Should I call my fitter or should I just call him names and wait until I've skied in them?)
I'm sure it's not exactly critical but maybe there's some useful snippets...
I'll post this in gear too but I'd like to hear what the professionals think.
