O Brien Warranty on boots.
Quick question about warranties- I have been riding the O Brien Natural with Xenon bindings since 2008 and I love the set- up. Last year the Xenons were pretty much destroyed so I bought a pair of 2008 IOn's ( basically the same boot) - that were brand new from a store in Wisconsin. This was last june 2011- so they had been hanging around that store a while and I got a great deal - sinnce you can't put new boots on the older boards- I was pretty happy.

Now- the right boot is tearing apart - less than a season on them as I was out a good part of last year with a blown eardrum. Question- will O'brien warranty these and if so- how do they do it? I REALLY like to foot bed in the older boots- way more cushion that any i have seen out there new today and while I'd love to buy a whole new set-up, I really don't want to give up the comfort of the boots I have

Sorry for the long message, but I would appreciate some feedback o how this is handled- even some sort of credit would be good... I don't know. If O Brien has a stock of these older boots somewhere- let me know- I'd love to get a set along with a new 144 Natural that will accept the older mounting pattern.

Go through the shop you purchased them at. It will be helpful to have your sales receipt, you'll prob need it.

First, I would go through the shop you bought them from. Even though they are an older model, the warranty should be from purchase date. However, I have seen some shops void warranties on outdated products before so you never know.

If you get no luck that route, contact Obrien's customer service at 800-662-7436 and explain your situation. They're customer service has been top notch.

I got a hold of Chris Johnson at O'brien, he will hook it up.
