I'm not based in the US but I'd like to understand what our options are as well. While I don't want to make a big stink about this, the exposed eyelets were a big part of the reason that I ordered the boots.
[[SPOILER]] These look great. I'm looking forward to receiving mine but I thought the original specs for the boot were for exposed brown eyelets and hooks.
