Lange RX liners quality

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi, 

 

I bought new Lange RX 130 LV boots 2 seasons ago.

Last season due to the injury I had 1 day in them. This season, I have only 10 days and just noticed yesterday that my liner start cracking. Is this normal?

How long liners should be in relatively in good shape? I would assume that 11 days is not really the goal, right?

(P.S. since the warranty is 1 year, I am out of the warranty since last season, which I didn't use boots).

 

Thank you,

 

Oleg

the silver thing cracked/bursted in the middle about 1/3-1/2 inches (this photo is before it cracked, will get home and update the photo).. I know I could probably duct taped it.. .but is this normal after just 11 days

My biggest fear, that the crack would go on and on till it reach the end..

Last question, since I am out of the warranty (even if I didn't use the boots) I need to fix the issue myself. Here are the solutions which I think I could do. Please validate them, if possible. I am trying to go from the cheapest to the most expensive:

 

a. put a duct tape on the crack and pray it will not go any further

b. go to shoe repair shop and ask to put some patch and sue it on (would it create a pressure point enough to be consider?)

c. leave it as is till it fail, and then buy new intuition liners (the most expensive option and I am not exactly comfortable dropping another $250 on almost brand new boots).

The crack/split is likely caused by pulling up and forward on the Boot tongue when putting them on or taking them off. I would suggest you trim around / below the split and not worry about it at all.

I tried to fix it with the hole.. hope that would work and crack won't go any further...

that should work just fine, if not just cut a bit of the material away, it is mostly cosmetic and to stop the tongue and all the elastic below looking untidy, we frequently cut that piece out completely if we need more vertical space above the instep

tested yesterday, basically it is in stress when I put boots on before clipping; it hold 1 day, so I am pleased so far.
