What is causing this?
 
3 Attachment(s)
These are new K2 IPO's. I initially thought it was due to skating the board to the lift (I do it a crazy way with my right foot in front of the board and not behind). I thought this was causing the edge to strike the boot. I then realized the damage is also occuring on the foot that stays in the binding. I know the question sounds a bit ridiculous, as it is likely due to rubbing on the binding, but is there a way to prevent this or stop it from getting worse? Thank for your help.

Hate to tell you this as I had those boots. But it's not the binding, it's the material on the boot. Doesn't matter which binding I've used. Rome, K2, Raiden, Flux I got that wear on that boot. Slap some duct tape over the back.

Crazy

What kind of bindings do you have?

Well after posting I noted that that my 2012 Burton Cartels have this near foot cup, probably to aid in foot hold. I like my bindings fairly tight, so its not as if I am leaving them too loose. I think BA has it pegged. Just a lightweight material, and to slap some duct tape on. The boots are the most comfortable ever!

I will pick some up today! I noticed our local Mountain Equipment Coop carries it - and it is in stock. Thanks for the advice. I can pick up some DWR spray when I am there too. Kill 2 birds.

That damage is crazy, but I'm a bit confused: Are those boots the 2011-12 UFOs?

BA- Is that damage common for K2 boots? It looks like this year's version may have a different material in that area?

I apologize if I hijacked the thread. Just wondering before I invest in some T1 boots.

Picked up some of that goo and the boots look almost as good as new. That shit is great. Thanks again for the heads up.:thumbsup:
