Lange Comp 110 Sole Wear/Replacement Help?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi, I have a pair of black lange comp 110's from a few years ago. I noticed that the heel and toe areas are worn. They don't appear that worn to the eye alone, but when a ruler is held at the very end of the lugs, they are nowhere near the DIN standard, which doesn't seem right based on appearance.  However, these do not appear to have replacement lugs. The only thing I noticed were 4 very tiny holes on both ends of the boots. All the other comp lines have replaceable lugs, so it just doesn't make sense that one line doesn't..I was thinking that the four holes allow replacement, but I'm not sure. Any help will be greatly appreciated! I'll provide pics.

that boot never had replaceable sole pads, there were different boots in the line at that time some had them some didn't, (the performance orientated boots were solid soles like this)

 

the 4 holes are for a boot fitter to put on a race lifter plate, the holes just helped to align the screws on the plate

 

couple of options 

 

1 difficult to tell from the pictures exactly how worn they are as the point at the end of the toe and heel spring is not where the DIN measurement is made (they don't look horrendous) so you could use them for another while and  then replace them

 

2 take them, to a fitter who deals with race boots and see if they can plane them flat and put a set of plates on them, costs a bit so with the age of the boot my thoughts would be not to bother

Ah, okay. I thought that the measurements were taken at the end(thankfully I was wrong!). I actually took measurements at several points along the boot sole and if you went beyond the point a few centimeters on each end (think where the pressed boot sole length is displayed in the 3rd picture down on the right) the DIN standards are met, 29 and 18mm. Based on your reply CEM I'm just going to buy a pair of yaktrax and not worry. Thank you very much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
