Boot Problems

My boots are killing me! They either cause extreme cramping in my calves or I lose all circulation in my feet and they go completely numb. I have had my boots fit by a certified boot fitter, and still the problem continues. Any suggestions?

It sounds like you may be doing the upper buckles up too tight. Ask your boot fitter or an instructor to check how tight you are doing them up to see if it is right.

I had this problem too, on about my 5th day in a row of skiing. It got really bad during the lift rides. I started undoing my buckles before a long lift ride....worked for me. Just lifted the levers up (didn't undo them entirely) then pushed the levers back down before going down the hill again. Worth a shot I guess.

Definitely check the upper buckles, or better yet have the boot replaced as soon as possible. Keeping up with such problems could grow worse so enough with the enduring and start enjoying!

First of all, let me say that correct boot fitting is the single most important part of the ski equipment smorgasbord. Second, if you are in the North Tahoe area (or for that matter anywhere within a 4 hour drive), the boot fitter to see is Bob Campbell, owner of Elite Feet--2 shops, one at Northstar, the other at Squaw Creek. He is simply the best. Over the last couple of years, my entire ski cabin group has been fitted by him. Our ski levels run from strong intermediate to near expert. And our feet are very happy!

You may be fastening the upper buckles too tightly. Try loosening them and see if that solves the problem.

had the same problem till a bootfitter called Goeff in Breckenridge got me new boots with foot molds. Absolutely unbelievable. He doesn't sell boots, just fits them, so I found which ones I needed, bought them on ebay, saved hundreds and got them fitted. Will never trust anyone else!!!

Buckles are the main culprit.

You should never wear a thick, outdoor sock. A ski-specific sock works much better, a thick sock causes your foot to sweat, causing your feet to be cold. A thin, moisture wicking ski sock and a properly fitted boot, is the optimum combination.

Try loosening your boot a couple notches and see how that works out.
