Also if the boots aren't meshing with the bindings well, I would expect some ware in specific areas, especially if you aren't someone who straps in really tight. After only 15 days though... something is missing from this story...
Milk is always a bad choice. On the topic of boots, my two setups are a 2012 NS Raptor 159/Ride El Hefe's
and a 2012 Ride Berzerker 161/2012 Flow NXT-ATSE's and the boot seems to like both setups. I figured the Flow's would scuff the heel a little bit, and the El Hefe is a damn solid binding, and I ride them both as tight as I can. Like I said though nothing major yet, but I definitely see myself buying new boots after next season.
I rest my board on my boot like a boss on the lift and I still get a shit ton of use out of my Salomon F22s.
From what I hear the F22 is designed for bigfoot, I'm an 11 with a slightly narrow foot, so I'm not sure that would work for me.
When I was in the Army I knew a man who had 3 rules about sex, one of them was "quantity not quality". I really regret not asking him what 200 pound twins would classify as.
