Hey thanks for your suggestions.. any more appreciated
I know it looks like a stepped in acid or something its crazy
The breakdown is happening directly under the big toe in both boots so that would seem it would be impossible to step in the same corrosive liquid and the exact same point on each foot and the damage affecting only a small patch on each sole.
I have contacted K2 but no response. I have also contacted torpedo7 the online company I purchased them from but also no response.
I dry them in a warm room near a heater but never on top or to close to the heater.
Done various searches over the internet cant seem to find anyone else who this has happened to.
I doubt I can fix them with glue, so It looks like I am up for a new pair of boots after only 8 days on the snow.
I never leave them outside so I doubt an animal has got to them.
The wear def appears to be coming from the outside of the boot the liner still looks brand new.
Do you think its possible my particular ones were made with faulty materials or a bad mix of rubber sole material ?
anyone have an e mail address for K2 as they did not respond to my online contact form ?
