Any suggestions for me, for us, anyone....?
Are your feet and hands cold even in your house? If so maybe you have an underlying endocrine problem, possibly thyroid related? It's very common. There are a host of other things that cause bad circulation as well.

Where do you snowboard in NY btw? Whenever I see NY in someone's nick I can never tell if they're talking about the city or the rest of NY :P I'm by Syracuse.

Not really, I only get the cold feet when I board...I have thought about that but i have recently had my thyroid checked and all is well

I am from NYC area...Long Island specifically, about 30 minutes drive from NYC...I dont board in NY though, I drive up to Vermont every weekend to Killington. I can't deal with NY snow...it sucks lol. The closest Mtn (other then Icy mountain creek) is Windham and thats 3 hours away...I figure as might as well drive the extra 2 hours to Killington lol

That sounds pretty cool. I should do that more often. I've only been to Stratton though. Yeah, the snow does suck here, but it's not just NY. It's called the ice coast for a reason

Sounds more like you have Renounds (sp) syndrome.

Anyways for the OP have you ever had a true custom orthodic made for your feet? Also which K2's did you have and have you tried going to a Dual Zone boot that moves the instep pressure. Without seeing your feet and working with you I can't do to much in terms of boot fitting.

It's funny you mention a custom orthotic, because I use one on a daily basis for my feet. I actually tried it in my boot this time, and it didn't seem to help.

I never owned a pair of k2 boots, but I tried them on in a board shop and they made my feet numb. Most boots make my feet numb just trying them on at a board shop. I wish i could remember the model but they were fairly high end BOA boots.

I'm not familiar with what a Dual Zone boot is. I have a fairly flat arch, although since using my orthotics over the years it has put a little arch in my foot. Honestly I feel like I have fairly normal feet otherwise. I have skinny ankles, so maybe my blood flow just gets cut off real easy.

It really sucks though man. I love boarding and would like to do it even more often. I'm not all that great, but it's my favorite thing by far. I'm just starting to get back into it again. I'm gonna get all padded up this year so I can do some park stuff and have some added confidence. Full feeling in my feet would be a great start

Focus BOA tightens at the instep when you crank the upper zone as well as the lower zone.

Have you tried Ride boots with their zonal speedlace system?

You need one made for a snowboard boot by a boot fitter not one made by a doctor. Also the reason your feet are going numb it sounds like is 1 you're using muscles you're not used to, 2 you could be over tightening your boot, 3 you don't have any arch support, 4 you have severe nerve damage from something you did to yourself in the past.

BA might be on to something...its Raynaud's disease

As for phile, I was also thinking lack of good arch support...maybe boot and binding smashing down the instep too much and not having enough arch support under your foot. Also while standing in line and the ride up...loosen your binding straps and then ratchet it back down at the top. Also do you have a history of foot or ankle injury or sprains that can also involve nerve damage.

So I just looked up Raynaud's disease...and its something Im going to look into. I really do get numbing cold feet and it wasn't always like that, it just started happening last season. Its only my feet though...the rest of my body feels fine. Thanks a lot BurtonAvenger and Wrathfidelity...Im going to see a doctor about it.
