    New Boot: Bring it back to the store?

    I wasn't able to get the metal tab under the rubber shim without damaging the rubber.

    Will my boot leak a lot more? Bring it back to the store? Get laughed at? Or maybe I'm being completely ridiculous?

    Lange just puts the rubber dam there for show. Those things leak like a colander.

    Pretty much true. They will leak even if it's in perfect condition. And they will laugh at you.

    Next time you see a bunch of ski racers, notice two things:
    - Lots of them wear Lange boots because Lange makes great race boots.
    - Everyone with Lange boots has duct tape over the toe.

    Open the boot up a little and work that fucker back into place. All it will really do is make the boots look uniform, as far as keeping water out....
    Im anal enough that I would do it.
    a positive attitude will not solve all of your problems, but it may annoy enough people to make it worth the effort

    The bigger question is why the boot is on a cookie rack in your sink.

    It's a much quicker way to fill the boot with water. You can do that by skiing it, but it takes so much longer.

    ^This. If they exchanged them for the same thing it's just a matter of time before the problem comes back.

    The toe dam can be easily replaced in Lange boots.
