Silveretta bindings, destroyed feet- solutions? in The Gear Critic Posted February 3, 2015 I don't have a solution but wanted to say that the same thing happened to me. I went from never having used the gear before, to skiing about 14 miles in two days. I got the blisters and worse, hurt my achilles badly enough that I had to bow out of a trip to Alaska when I hadn't recovered a month later. Maybe easing into using the boots/bindings/skis would help. But I also think the skiing just exacerbates any flaw in the way your boots fit. I'll be reading this thread if anyone has any suggestions.
