Default cold piggies

so when i go boarding by the end of the day my feet start freezing. I ride in the north east where it gets very cold but it gets to the point where its unbearable. I have thick ski socks that cost me 17 dollars so i know my socks are good. Could it be my boots are too tight or something else? And if it is that my boots are too tight how i can i fix this b/c i prefer a tight fitting boot. I ride a 9.5 burton moto.

shit and my bad i just realized im in the wrong section

Your socks may be too thick, restricting blood flow to your foot in tight boots.

You can get warmers that go over your toes. They are pretty effective actually.

A boot should be snug but not overly tight. As long as it keeps your heel down. You might try some different boots. I am not sure on the Burton Moto, but Burton boots as a rule of thumb break down quite quickly. So if you have had them awhile, it may be time for a new pair.

I have the same problem. I'm not sure that circulation is the cause in my case, but I use dual foot warmers in each boot, which does a good job of solving the problem.

It's likely caused by low blood circulation. I have the exact same problem. I use Toasty Toes or Grabber Toe Warmers. In the off season I buy the clearance ones for real cheap at TJ Maxx or Marshals by the box. Never have cold toes anymore.

I have the same boots and my feet are always toasty, even in -17c.

This season I added red hot superfeet and they're even more toasty now.
Most likely your boot's are too small.
