If the strands don't fit me well at the ankle (flares open) how would the patriot fit?
I'd say I'm about a 8.5D/E in Strand/PA.
I did try on neumok in 8.5 sockless in store and it seemed to fit great.
I have a lot of bowing on my AE strands. They are a year old and maybe only worn about 5-10 times. I never thought anything of it until seeing these pics and realizing mine are worse.
I bought them from Nordstrom at least a year ago. Is there anything I can do at this point?
what laces is everyone using? I'm not a fan of the laces that they come with. The leather laces I've seen in some photos are good.
Are you guys wrapping it around the ankles or using the speed hooks?
