Default Union Forces

Quick question for anyone with Forces. I've been noticing that the heal strap has been getting beat up, the stiching is coming apart, the strap is disforming and becoming discolored, just overall not the quaility I'd expect from a $200 pair of bindings. Is it my boots, am I cranking them to tight, or is it just the binding? I'm going to call Union today on lunch and get their feedback as well but wanted to see if I was the problem before I blame the bindings. Also only have 7 days on them. I know pics would help but I'm really just trying to see if someone else who owns these have a simular problem.

These pics show whats going on around the top of the binding looks worse in person.

I haven't heard of any problems with ankle straps. Usually there a ton of problems with the toe straps. Something is definitely wrong with the bindings-boots. Forces are supposed to be bombproof basically. I would call union and see what's up.

Yeah got on a chat with one of their online reps at lunch and he said take a pic and email him. So I'll get to the bottom of it tonight/ tomorrow hopefully.

6 seasons on the same force on my jib board. Straps are primo. 3rd season on my forces on my park board...Straps are a little worn but not falling apart, and I ride these 3-4 days a week.

New straps on the way! I have the pics will post. I think my boots are causing the issue, their K2 Maysis not sure why it would happen though.

Yeah, thats quite a rip. I wonder if they skimped on threads this run or if it was just a boot issue.
