    Mavic is usually way happier going through a shop than dealing with customers one on one. If you can go to the shop you bought them from you should be fine.

    I've been going to the shop where I bought them for 10 years. I'd hope they'd cover me. We'll see. If not I'm going to try to secure that strap somehow. I don't want to have to buy new shoes this soon.

    If Mavic or your LBS can't/won't warranty it, take it over to a local shoe repair. My local shoe/leather repair place has done wonders on my work boots.

    With few exceptions, most consumer goods now-a-days are crap and are made to wear out prematurely. Because as a society we are happy to buy another. Sad.

    One shoe exception is Danner boots. I have the same pair for over 10 years.

    I just went through this with my sidis - I went directly to sidi and they wanted proof of purchase. I didn't have it so no warranty

    If they cant I'm going to fashion something out of webbing and leather rivets.

    It probably won't help you, but your comment made me think of this cool stuff:

    As you said, people put up with it and the cycle continues.

    JUst as I was actually getting pumped to do my rivet/webbing fix I find out that the LBS is going to warrantee them for me. They also are possibly going to swing me a hell of a deal on a 2011 Specialized Camber 29er.

    It's like play-doh when you form it, but once it sets, it turns into a flexible silicone rubber stuff.

    I think Mavic would warranty that, but I'm no expert. My Mavic shoes look like brand new after a year of abuse. I can't wait for my new ones to arrive so I can break them in.

    My temporary fix while I wait for new shoes to arrive. Punched 2 holes all the way through the shoe and secured the loose side of the buckle with a ziptie... that should hold for a week or 2.
