Blucher or Balmoral?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Assuming they are made on the same last, which would you be able to tighten more, a blucher or a bal?

I believe that they would tighten to about the same place if they are, in fact, made on the same last.

The blucher could, however, be made a bit looser.

Most bluchers are meant to have some space between the laces (quarters?) so you should be able to tighten them more; however, this may distend the tongue if you overdo it. They are definitely a better choice if you may need them looser (high instep for example), since loosened bals look pretty bad.
