Oh wow. Don't know if this post is still active but just got a kick out of reading it. I still have a pair of these and was looking for heel replacements. Not sure it's even worth it but I love these boots. I'll give $5 for the heels. Also I'm a size 10 and my boots are 8.5. I remember the sales guy saying they run small so 11? Either your feet are huge or the sales guy put you in the wrong size. No wonder they never fit. Anyway I've experienced the 80s plastic first hand. Had an old pair of San Marcos that I took out one year after being stored in my attic which gets up to 100 degrees in the summer. The first turn I tried to make I felt like both bindings released and I face planted. When I looked at my boots they were both shattered between the first and second buckle. Hilarious! I've now had these Technica TNS for a long time and other than the heel pad breaking this year, I've definitely gotten my monies worth.

This guy (drfeelgood) knows what he is talking about!! For 15 years, off and on, I was a boot fitter in the NW and repaired many older boot models that still had life left in them. As a matter of fact my brother is in need of a heel for this particular boot right now (in 2015) and the rest of his boots are in great shape. If anyone still has a pair of the TNS AVS we would like to buy the heel and toe pads if they are in good condition. Please let me know, thanks!
Not quite good as new but it worked and the TNS AVS are rockin the slopes once again.
