I just purchased a new pair of Dynafit Zzeus AT boots. The boots fit good except they are very snug around the fore foot. The shop guys told me that it would be easy to punch out the toe area because they are made of PU. When I was told they would need the boots for a week, to punch the toes out I was surprised, but said OK. I had been thinking they would do it while I was there so I could point out the exact spot where they were tight etc..
I returned a week later only to be told that they were "having problems",and that I should come back in a few days. I thought.....oh crap they're gonna destroy my new boots! When I picked them up I saw that the right boot had been heated to the point where the shell material had blistered, the shell is grossly over punched in one or two spots ,and the shell appears to sort of be sagging slightly to one side at the toe area. Also the front buckle attachment point is loose, like the rivet hole was stretched while hot.
I am wishing I had just taken the boots to a good boot fitter, but now, I don't know if the boots are ruined or not. Is it not a problem for the material to be gotten that hot? Am I just being anal? The boots do fit better, but they still need work, but I'm not going to let these guys touch them again.
What should I do? Is it ridiculous to ask for a new pair of boots? I did get these on sale for a very good price. Maybe I should just take them to a good boot fitter ,and get his opinion?
Thanks for any advice.
