I wear Salomon Ivy boots but with the speed lace which gives a little more control than I felt I had with the Boas. I hate the Boa system though to be honest. As for relief from pain and numbness there is this tape call KT Tape and it using kinsieology (sp) to apply pressure and relieve the tension in the muscles. As a temporary remedy I would suggest buying a roll. It's around twenty bucks and you can get a few uses out of it and wear it for days at a time, it can get wet, bends with your skin and doesn't pinch or hurt. Kinesiology Tape | KT Tape Check it out here. I use it for my knees. But in the end, you need new boots or liners eventually. If you can try on guys boots too and see how they fit too.

Good luck and I hope you get more time on the mountain.

Salomon's quick lace system is the only one worth anyone's time.

I hear KT tape is worthwhile.

Sounds more and more like the OP needs to buy new boots.

I started off with a pair of Burton's don't remember the model but they were cheap and hand me downs. They squished the top of my foot so bad I was left with bone aches. I wanted laces so I could adjust for the big arch in my foot but they only ones I could find were the Nike's and they just weren't tall enough for me so I went with the Salomon's which was a great choice. It's a stiffer boot. The speed lace is split into the liner, the top portion of the boot and the bottom potion of the boot. A comfortable tight fit for me. I have always had issues with shoes so I knew going into snowboarding that I needed to pick out the right boot the first time around. I debated going with a men's boot to get laces but my calfs are ginormous so a girls boots and bindings were necessary.
