    5 years ago I would have said duct tape, but now I say gorilla tape will fix it right up.

    Dang. I’ve skied and skinned in mine for 40ish days and they look and feel brand new. Were these early prototypes?

    broken K2 Mindbender boot

    Also saw something similar at Alpental this weekend. AFAIK the boots didn't have a lot of days/vertical in them.

    Seems perfectly normal. JSA.

    Mindbender? More like Mindbreaker.
    You should have been here yesterday!

    Damn.
    My pinnacles developed cracks in the lower shells, and was pondering these as a future replacement.
    K2 - you out there? This isn't a good look, ya know.
    [Of course, I'm cheap and looking to poach a pair, super cheap, off the 'bay - so you're probably not losing money from me, but you never know.]
