How can I avoid getting skier's toe?

Proper boot fit is the key to avoiding skier's toe. If your boots are too large, your foot will slide forward in the boot, causing your toe to bang into the front of the boot. If your boots are too small, your foot will be hitting the front of the boot prior to skiing. The motions of skiing can then further force your toe into the front of the boot, causing pain and skier's toe.

To avoid getting skier's toe, make sure your ski boots fit properly. Don't cram your foot into a friend's boots. And be sure your socks are not bunched up. This painful injury does not occur if your boots and socks fit correctly.
