BurtonAvenger Taking it off has nothing to do with it. It's creasing from the lack of back spine support as he laterally flexes it. Boots have done this for over 30 years.

This is my guess as well. I do that to my boots and I'm seeing a little crease on my boots which is similar to the OP's boots.

No, I've always been careful and taking of the boots with the inner boot still on. Can't be the problem.

If there simply going from living room to slope that obviously should not cause a problem. Not saying this is what happened just asking if it was possible.

Nearly everyone of us would have broken boots if that were true.
I keep mine in the 70* house, like most or all of us do. I then hit the hill anywhere from 30*f to -10*f to ride. That is a swing of 40* - 80* colder in a very short time. I have never broken anything, nor is this a common issue for most ppl.

slyder see the pros to the rescue. The veterans usually have the correct answer and as usual BA nails it.

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...
I don't even need to read what the rest of these people wrote in response here's the reason they're breaking. You are riding soft shitty boots. Nikes are made with cardboard. You're creasing the backspine because it's not meant to absorb that type of flex so it just bends.

You don't want it to happen, buy a real boot not some piece of shit Nikes or soft 32's. Your best bet is to look at something with a urethane backspine like a K2, Ride, or Salomon.

Highbacks aren't the issue, riding style isn't the issue, it's the boots.

Now unless that backspine is pinching your achiles it's just a cosmetic break more than anything.
