Default Question about Hot Spots and Toe Numbness

I'm getting hot spots at the ball of my right foot, and then I get toe numbness in index and ring toe on the same foot. What I've noticed is that my toes tend to bump up against the front of my boot when I'm standing on flat ground; could this be causing the hot foot? Or is hot foot due to something else?

You might be lacing up your boots too tight around the ball of your foot. This can cause the numbness, and I am assuming the hotspot also. Also, the boot might be too narrow for you and lacing it up differently will not help. If they are brand new, they might need some breaking in, though boots should never really make your foot numb.

It is not bad if your toes bump up against the front of the boot, as long as it is not pushing on it. I buy my boots so if I wiggle my big tie, I can barely feel the fabric on the front. If it is pushing against the boot, your boots are too small for you.

Perhaps someone else will have a more expert opinion on this, but it really seems like your boots are too small for you and you might want to invest in a new pair.

Hmm, ok. Does anyone have tips on getting a boot modified (not the molding that they do at ski shops, actual modification)? I think perhaps I need another 1-1.5 inches of space on my right boot.
