weird, i had 2012 forces with the same problem. not THAT antiquated.

doesnt anyone else see the issue when theyre telling you to buy new boots to fit their shitty 10$ toe caps?

why? theyre a binding only company? it doesnt take a genius to make a toe strap/cap that wont fall off. but apparently geniuses wouldnt have designed these because CLEARLY wet leather is not going to give a tight hold against ANYTHING.

It speaks volumes when the biggest Union supporter here is using the Burton caps.
