burnuhfoo I ended up removing both bottom sets of rivets from those malavitas. Since then, 10 days of riding with no more damage! Wish I would've had the foresight to think of this before I bought the vitas. If I could go back I would've got the cartels cuz they don't have those rivets.

lernr I like TT's advice - a lot!

Not sure the specifics, such as shoe, lace will work OK, but the general direction to fix the cause rather than the symptom is great

timmytard Nothing you do to the boot is going to help, duct tape=shredded, not near as tough as the leather/pleather it just ate through. Sealer is going to do even less.

See if you can find a pliable 2 part epoxy & put a dab on the rivet, then find level. you might have to prop weird shit under it or tie a shoelace around it & hang one end, so that it settles into a nice round flat circle.

If the rivet spins and the other piece doesn't or vice versa, cut a tiny piece of thin plastic slightly bigger than the rivet Then epoxy it. That should keep it spinning freely.

DrrrtyChurro after a season and a bit that won't be your only problem! Sucks, but nothings made to last these days unfortunately.

lernr +1 for Duct tape.

I'd be pretty upset if this happened to my new boots. Can't they put tougher material in the heel area

burnuhfoo I really was thinking duct tape... Shoe sealant sounds good too. Will any type of shoe sealant work? Any recommendation?

I'm too out of money to do anything about larger bindings right now.
