Shoe Damage Report & Shoe P0rn Central - Part II - Page 1355

I suspect the answer to your first question is that the boots have speedhooks, which you don't use bar-lacing on. The answer to you second question is that you often get creases up to the point where the toe stiffener ends. Sometimes, this is shorter than the cap toe and the cap will be creased.

The only answers he gives are the usual monotonous sentences: "Wear in good health" or "Nephew, thank you". Oh, and hundreds of pics of Aldens.

I'd laugh my ass of if he responded to this with" Nephew, fuck you".

Thank you very much for this, cbfn. Your message has reassured me about the creasing issue.

 

The boots don't have speedhooks, but two, small, slits in the leather of the tongue. The idea is to thread one of the laces through this, to keep the tongue in place. (With trainers, these slits will accommodate both laces). My problem is how to keep tension in the laces when I do them up. Clearly, there is only so much 'give' in the lace, once it is through the hole in the tongue. 

 

It would be great if he told me to fuck off.

I am personally a bigger fan of criss cross lacing on boots, http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/crisscrosslacing.htm, and then you can pass both laces underneath the slit.

I was not referring to you with the last comment, rather to VRaivio. smile.gif

Thanks, cbfn. Yes, I use criss cross lacing on the boots and I have tried putting both laces underneath the slit, but there isn't enough room. I guess, in the scheme of things, it isn't the greatest of problems!  :satisfied:
