Split boot rubbing on binding...

Discussion in 'Splitboard Gear' started by Joseph Peters, Dec 11, 2018.

  1. I'm using the Thirty-Two Jones boot and Voile Light Rail bindings. The boots have two hard seasons on them and have developed pretty bad rub areas (see photos).

    Spendy boots and need to figure out a solid repair before they get worse. I was thinking barge cement ? Any ideas would be helpful.

    Thanks,
    Joe

    I usually slap a vinyl patch + heat on my boot liner in wear areas. Duct tape works too. Could also try putting it over the screw itself on the binding.

    Could also consider switching to hard boots :)
  4. Nice, seems burly. Ill give the patch a go.
  5. The Phantom rig is definitely happening before my next romp in the AK range. I wore the Jones' up to 15K with crampons but not as confidence inspiring as I would have liked.

    patch and or shoe goo maybe?
  7. An update.

    I headed to Mountain Gear for patches and they walked me out the door and pointed me towards Reesa's (http://www.ressasshoeservice.com) the next block over.

    Greg glued and sewed Vibram patches to the rubbing spots. Burly. He charged $60 bucks.

    He is currently working on some Burton Driver X's where sheath on the laces pulled from the Dyneema. The fella is a master.
