I am trying to determine the answer if this is normal (at least for Lange).
my 3rd buckles (from the bottom) is wearing out very fast on both boots (left and right).
After 17 days on the mountain I have a significant wear our of 1 buckle on each boot (the rest 3 are perfect). I am really afraid that if it would continue to wear our the same rate, in about 5-7 more days I would need a new buckle on each boot.
In addition to that, a cosmetic but very annoying feature of the buckles... during the wear and tear period the black buckles are inking the paint (after each ski day), so I have to wipe white boot every day removing this paint (alcohol works so far).
Is it normal? Could I do anything about it? How could I order a new buckles from Lange if needed, or is this repairable at some way?
