I am wondering if any of you guys have input about dry rot on my La Sportiva’s. Can the rands on these things be “resoled” or is there something else I could do??? I don’t think it hinders the performers or water resistance of them but maybe I am wrong in saying so. Any help or advice is helpful.

Same boots had the same look for me. A non issue. They do sell rubber conditioners, could help with future cracking. Re-randing is not necessary Stiles

Yep had exact same thing happen to the toes on mine, was a non issue to me .

Try armor all , it won't heal the cracks but it will prevent further cracking.

You might call around to some cobbler shops and see what they recommend.
They might have a fix as well .
