Feet Falling Asleep in My Boots

So I've been riding for about 3 years now and I think it's probably time to get new boots anyway, but I have a very important question... Are my boots too big/stretched out if my toes are falling asleep after a long ride down the mountain? The boots are Burton Hail's and they fit perfectly when new and basically up until the last time I used them. I just got back from Snowmass and Ajax and I noticed that my feet were tired and that I had little feeling in my toes every time I made it to the bottom of the mountain. I was ok when I got off the lift again at the top, but the cycle repeated all day long. Is this normal? Please give some input. Thanks.

they may have packed out and you are lacing them up tighter than you used to, to get them to fit...just a thought...

I have the same situation with my Hails in my left foot, but I always have trouble with any kinda shoe in that foot even though it's smaller and narrower.

A limb falling asleep is cut off of blood flow to the nerves in the area if I remember correctly. Loosen things up, if your feet are moving in the boot, try an insert. If that don't work out, time for new boots. Might want to check your bindings too. Through the course of time has the position of the buckles or straps changed that they now create a pressure point. Limbs asleep is very serious and makes you prone to serious injury. I've watched more then one person try to walk on a leg that was asleep. One snapped his friggin' leg in half, popping the the bones through the skin. It looked like his leg just exploded. Sounded like it too.

he probably deserved it ;.

Just try loosening your boots up until you get some new ones and you should be okay.
