Are most of you guys commenting on heel slip using all the speed hooks? Really makes a difference. Really think the wrap around the ankle then not using the speed hooks is unattractive and impractical
Depending on what I'm doing I'll lace up 1 or 3 of the hooks
For time to time I'll hit the sole with some PitchBlend. What's some of you guys policy on oiling the sole?
Yes, when the boots are laced up traditionally a very slight heel slip is to be expected. There are several ways you can make this less noticeable if it really bothers you. Buy custom fitted boots, try different socks, add some form of insole or learn how to tie them using the heel lock lacing method.
Treating the bottom of the soles? I tried that once thanks to some SF prodding. Never again. Walking on old worn asphalt in the summer was like walking on wet snot covered ice in the rain.
