Could you post a picture of the damage?
The Vapors are outlined on the first page.
Heel to toe feels fine. I guess "side to side slop" is a good way to describe the feel above the ankle. Even when initially tied it seems they "encircle" the ankle as opposed to tightening ONTO it, if that makes sense. After reading the breakdown on page one, I may try on some Vapors when I get a chance and use my replacement pair for public skating.
I'll try to get a pic of the damage tomorrow.
