Broken boots again

Hello guys,

This is the third time I cracked my right boot(goofy rider) and it's so f*cking annoying.

Nike vapen this time, last time two pairs of 32 lashed. Can anyone tell me why? I'm just jibbing around, small kickers, rails, bonks and ALOT of frontflips. Can frontflips be the answer? Every boot has been broken within two weeks.

Pic to show you guys.

So, what boot should I have? It sucks...

Do you have massive forward lean on your bindings?
Are your bindings to small?

Since this is the 3rd pair of boots I'm thinking it's more of a binding problem.
Can you post some pics of your bindings on your board

Oh, I totally forgot. No forward leaing, using switchback(eikis model) so It's straight as an arrow. Broke my last two 32 boots in flux bindings, se30 and titan. It's crazy!

all ankle flex and no pressure on your turns

kidding but kinda serious. How the hell do you get that much backward lean with a highback and break a boot

I say put the boot in the binding and snap some pics, this is a must somethings going on...obviously...

I'd say a perfect fit. Am I missing something?

Thanks for all time btw.

Obviously the mouth on your highback has come to life and the bend in your boot is just the hinge of its jaw. Obviously.

Something doesn't add up. Where do you store your boots? Do you use boot dryers? If it's not a binding issue it seems like something would have to be damaging the structural integrity of the boot.

how soft are those highbacks???

I honestly think that when you pressure backwards your highbacks buckle and over time you just snap the boot. I'm not familiar with those bindings but they just look flimsy and soft... nothing to support the back of your boot, hence the fail of 3 pairs of boots with those same bindings.

Dump the bindings

Soft highbacks! I don't think the binding is the problem. I broke two pair 32 lashed in flux titan the past seasons.

I have switchbacks and don’t have this problem with my boots but my boots are stiff. Switchback highjacks are like most bindings now soft torsionally and stiffer edge to edge. I don’t know what you are doing but maybe the boots are to soft for what you are doing.
