/ Koflach Vario problem
However, the little rubbery green rand (black back section in the photo above) that goes around the boot where the top two lace loops are is splitting. Is it possible to simply replace that only? Because the rest of the boot is in great nick..
Where is it cracking/splitting? you wont get a spare part, but could repair, or even fing a donor cuff on ebay or the like, shells and cuffs cover more than one size normally
It's splitting right at the back of the flex cuff, in 5 places...Doubtful that i'll be able to repair, especially given the severity/number of splits. In all honesty, they don't owe me anything...
The plastic shell of the boot looks in good condition but I've never checked that using the freezer method; i'd be weary of any forms of repair because I'll be using them on a long trip with multi camps so the LAST thing i need is to be worrying about my footwear.
