Cross-country skiing has grown in popularity lately and more and more recreational skiers are entering this sport. Cross-country ski boots must be comfortable and able to work in a wide range of temperatures. Many skiers suffer from cold feet even at higher temperatures. In downhill ski boots, there is constant pressure on the artery and the nerve, but in cross-country ski boots the pressure is decreased in parts of the step.
This video shows how the pressure on the dorsal aspect of the foot changes during different parts of the steps in cross-country ski boots.
VPECS have been installed in cross-country ski-boots and tested in real ski conditions, and significant effect on temperature was observed.
