triumph.man same thing occured with mine, but also the bond from the sole is starting to separate a little from the sole and shoe. Got some shoe goo to fix it and good to go.

It's only cosmetics. Just go shred and don't worry about it. No one is looking at your boots anyways.

wrathfuldeity Zell, its the bindings rubbing on the boots....it is nothing but usually wear. If you want to do something use McNett "Freesole" and look at the link below

zell Thanks for your reply guys!

It is indeed faux leather, and if I touch it with my fingers will lift and peel.

Will try to find this Toe Armor and apply it, maybe it will work even if it's not real leather

Well, I've actually rented the board and the bindings the two times I've used those boots, however the bindings seemed to be fitting fine (not too tight nor too loose). The first were Rossignol Temptations, while the second some random Head bindings.

ISsthere anything I can do to the boots themselves to prevent further damage/peeling to the sides?

Thanks!
Paint this stuff on the suspect panel. That doesn't look like real leather in the photo, but the stuff should still protect it.

if its real leather it should not peel. if its bonded faux leather then it probably will but who knows.

cerebroside Are your bindings sized appropriately for your boots?

speedjason tape up any sharp edges on hour straps.

mikemack03 Looks like your binding is digging in big time!

Burton Ruler leather peeling

Hi all,

I've recently got a brand new pair of Burton Ruler and used them only 2 times. They are however peeling on the sides (approximately where the bindings are) and I'm afraid that in a couple more rides they will lose their impermeability.

Is that normal? Before buying them I read a few reviews, but none of them was mentioning this issue.
Is there anything I can do to prevent more damage?

Would they be covered by warranty?

Thanks for your help!!
