Everything is kosher until you get a cease and desist.The below taken from http://instagram.com/brianthebootmaker and I like his line from one post "Bringing quality back to the U.S. one boot at a time."The more people that know you can resole a decent pair of the boots the better. Everyone should be thinking of their boots in terms of resoling them, at least, a couple of times before binning them.Find a good cobbler and keep them busy!

OMG. Methinks, we are about to discover how highly polished a pair of RMW can become!I wonder what the NSN of those boots will be ?Individual fitting sounds very un-army to me.
Embrace the coconut
Of course, simply use strips of kevlar reinforced leather with appropriately sized and spaced holes attached to the inside, covering the metal surrounds but allowing the laces to move freely. Ask your cobbler to attach the strips using rocking horse poop and left handed screwdrivers. You must then also lubricate the laces with nothing other than coconut oil for fearSeriously though, there is no real way to prevent this short of covering the eyelets or the tongue, which is...
