Default Salomon F22 foot insulation

I picked up a pair of F22s over the last weekend and spent three days on them at Schweitzer. Great boots, except I noticed my feet got much colder than usual. The temperature on the mountain was certainly cold (single digits, negative wind chill), but I would have thought they'd do a bit better. Anyone else have issues with cold feet with F22s?

I've had the opposite experience, although the coldest I've ridden whith them is the high teens. I've also had to switch to some thin under armor ski socks as all my smartwools were too warm.

So to answer your question I've had the opposite problem.

They're not a warm boot, that's for sure. They're low profile, so you gotta shed bulk and that means less insulation. I just pick up some Toasty Toes foot warmers to wear when it's cold.

I agree with the post above. My feet are colder in these boots than any other I've had previously and it most likely is due to the low profile of the boot.

I actually had the exact opposite experience, I found these boot very warm. A possible explanation is with the lacing system. It's possible to pull these things so tight an lock them in place that you can impair circulation to the feet. This will definitely cause cold feet

Interesting that there are instances on both sides of the fence. I can see how the low profile shell could cause the boots to not be as warm, which was my first thought. My Burton SLXs were low profile too, but way warmer. I know I'm not overtightening and cutting off circulation. I definitely use smartwool socks too.

I guess we'll see what happens after this slightly warmer weekend.
