Numb and sore feet
I have a question about my boots. I have a strong feeling that I already know the solution - so this thread might be kinda redundant but anyhow... here goes:
Everytime I snowboard, I get sore and sometimes numb feet. It starts to get bad after a couple of hours but it actually annoys me from the beginning. My boots are Burton Moto '09. It's mostly under my feet that I feel that prickly feeling - and later numbness. The thing is, I'm pretty sure I have too small boots. I can feel that my toes are obviously under pressure in my boots (also in the inner boot). I bought them this way because I thought they would adapt to my feet (like ski boots do) but I've learned that they don't expand as much, at all. So, I'm pretty sure that this is the reason. However, I am worried that it might be my bindings. My bindings are Burton Mission. I was thinking that they might be pressurizing my feet in a way that is bad for the circulation.
What do you guys think? Right now, I'm looking into selling my old boots and buying some new ones. But do you think it's the bindings or the boots? (I've tried also riding with the bindings strapped less tight - but the same).
I just don't wanna buy new boots if it's unnecessary - but honestly I think this is the solution because I've been snowboarding in my boots for 4 weeks and they're still the same (obviously too small).
