Contact recrafting.

They may be able to help.

If not, your local cobbler can, but you have to get a good match in speedhook color/style.

Now the inevitable sizing question: How would one size the 8-Last in comparison to the 5- and 1-Lasts?

And BCer is wearing them loud and proud!

Or just replace them all?

I was actually debating removing all of them and putting in eyelets. This is on my recent Eagle County MTO, and with small ankles, the speedhooks are more of a pain than I thought they would be. I like my Dalton's better with all eyelets. I wonder how much that would cost. Also wondering if it would ruin my shoe/the leather at all...

It can be done, but be aware that the spacing is different, and they may look odd.

So far it's been a week i wear my Promontory boots and i dont feel as confortable as my other AE shoes...

The heel feel weird and i tried to remove the insole but it didn't fix the feeling and add another feeling like wearing a brick...

Do anybody having the same feeling as me?

No love for the promontory? or for me :) 

 

Anyway... for me they don't work as good as the others one... this morning i walk'd 20min with them and my right heel was hurting so bad! 

 

I may return them if no body have a solution ..

Hey guys, just got my seconds long branch- and I was wondering about this steak on one of the shoes- it looks like someone took a light marker to it. Is there anything I can do myself to fix this?

I only have a jos a banks shoe care kit.

I would imagine that there is simply something just wrong with your shoe, If the shoes are roomy on you order an insert or the AE orthotic. I am sure you would see a lot about it in the boot review on AE's site if it was common. I have 2 Daltons, Long Branch, Carson City and Shaker Heights and I would consider them all to be at maximum comfort level.

I thought the spacing was the same on AE? My wife's Bayfields seem to have the same spacing between the eyelets and hooks. I am considering having hers switched to all eyelets. I dunno why I didn't think of that during the MTO process. Dunno what I was thinking.

Good point.

Check the specific boot.

I wasn't aware.

Are your Dalton's spaced differently?
