Listen and see here for ski, boots and bindings :)
Note that I buy my boots a full 2 sizes larger to accomodate my foot system and still ensure that there is plenty of wiggle room to keep the toes toasty.
On my feet I have the same set up that I use for winter mountaineering. Listed from inside out: wool liner sock, maple sap bag as vapour barrier, mohair thick plush sock on top.
A huge thanks for Baffin for their support with the boots!
