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.
