The recommended solution(s) are in addition to having a suitable footbed.

It is assumed that you already have a good footbed. For Ski boots this would be a custom made ‘Conform’able’ or similar.
For Snowboard boots this would be a ‘Superfeet’ or similar. In any case, these recommendations will always help.


#04 Black toe nail(s)



Toes are pushing on the end of your boots.

The nail can eventually fall off if too much damage is done.


Make sure your big toe nails are cut short. Thinner socks and or thinner footbeds will help. You may need larger volume boots.

Check you are doing your boots up properly to start with. You want your foot to be nicely held back into the heel pocket.
