I have Salomon Synapses which are great boots, but have the self locking lace eyelets that are right under that strap. Overall I love the bindings. I already sent off a warranty claim to Rome, so we will see what happens. I love the bindings, but do any of you think it would be benificial to add some shoe goo to that spot to reenforce that area??
I have the same boot as you and the Rome 390's.
The ankle strap is starting to tear where its rubbing on my laces. The material that they are using on the ankle strap is not very durable in my opinion. Its really soft and thin. I don't know about their warranty cuz I am out in Japan for the season but I'll probably try and email them and see what they can do.
I have started to use my lower my boot gater from my pants over the lace part so that its not rubbing directly on the ankle strap.
