Default is it just me?

Granted I have not gone through alot of boots (on my second pair). But is it just me or does the right (or left if your goofy) get torn up a lot more then the other.
I had to just have my burton moto's repaired because the right boot was so torn up that the plastic piece that holds the lace was coming out.

Im just curious do you guys think this is from:
A. having to constantly take the boot out of the binding
B. because I rest my board while riding the lift on my right boot. the edges of a snowboard can be sharp enough to gradually slice and fray the boot

It's from (B)... Resting your board on you foot and probably from skating on and off the lift and hitting your boots on the edges of the board.

Yeah, don't ever rest your board on your back boot on the chairlift. I learned that the hard way.

If you do want to, rest the back binding's heel loop on the toe section of the boot instead of the board edge.

the rear boot always gets more beat up...in/out of bindings, resting on board on it, and its the foot that you push around on. Use Mcnett freesole and coat the top of the boot and any other rips/cuts and the like.

Or, just take out the back boot's liner and replace it with a real working Iron Man boot liner in your size! Indestructible!


From one-sixth.blogspot.com

That might cost you a little bit more money though.

Those look like more of a freeride flex, do they maybe have an aluminum for park flex?

I've been doing this recently. A much better idea than under the board.
