If you can visually see the crack in your outsole, epoxy or super glue it up.  If you don't know where it's happening, then it might just be absorbing too much moisture through the fabric, I suggest getting a can of water repellent and go wild spraying the outer.

gorilla glue... we used it to glue up the sole my friends work boots on the job... they been through mud, rain, ice, you name it still holding strong. Make sure when you do it find a way to keep constant pressure on the cracked areas. it will help seat the glue better.
It comes and it goes, get it while it lasts.

Burton said no go since boots were >1 year old.
I can't complain since I preiviously broke a binding baseplate and they hooked me up with new ones.

My burton hail boots held up pretty well. I had about 100 days on those suckers before the front of the boot ripped off, but I just duck taped them up and now they are my back ups.

Depends on where you are letting in the water.
If it is through the tongue, it will not be warrantied because that is the equivalent of deliberately submerging your boot in water.
No boot tongue can be watertight. You have to be attentive and avoid shovelling slush around with your boot, whether it's accidental or otherwise.
If you are letting in water through the sole, then it is defective.
If you are letting in water through where the sole is bonded to the shell, then that is a grey area because it depends on construction.
Leather boots are typically watertight in that area.

Your best bet for anything is to complain and see what happens.

Shoe Goo is pretty awesome. For skateboarding especially. Yeah call Burton you might get a replacement boot. It doesn't hurt to try.

I'd call the big B on those.  it seems a little too quick to me as well.  On the other hand, you may have been at fault for the leak.  Do you have to kick away binding straps or ice often?  Pressure points in your bindings?  things like that can really work a boot over quickly.

If you don't get anywhere with the warrenty, Shoo Goo is the shiz.  I've never used it on snow, but it works wonders elsewhere for me.

My Vanns Jamie Lynns ripped on on my right boot on the side closest to my baby toe 3/4's of the way through my season in Switzerland. I was definitely expecting better quality from such a big name company..

Burton usually has a pretty good return policy. They may still be able to replace them or fix them for cheap. I'd call the company and see if they can help you out at all. I'd say they wore out way to fast.

25 days is not very many for boots. I think I hit about 50-60 days on mine before I got a crack that let in some water, and I felt like that was way too soon. I used a bit of epoxy to fill in the gap and have had no probs since. My other boots lasted a solid 3 seasons and still don't leak, so they've gone about 60-75 riding days with no leaks. 25 days is not enough, even if they are lower boots on the line.
Shop smart... Shop S-Mart.

I have get a pair of burton freestyle boots with 25 days use and one of them leaks like the titanic.
Granted they were one the lower boots in the line.
Does this seem a bit too quick?
How many days are other people getting?
