I have a question that I hope someone may know the answer or maybe Guy will chime in. I bought the Icy Mocha chukkas from the sample sale (from another member). I wasn't going to keep them but I have decided to wear them for a few weeks to see how they work. These dont have the eyelets and when lace them up I feel I am really stretching the leather. I want to put on some antique brass eyelets to take the load off the leather. The kit to install the eyelets seems pretty easy to use I just don't know if there are different size eyelets to buy. Anyone have any idea what size to buy? Probaly a strange question but thought I'd ask. It's probably best to send Viberg an email, but you guys seem to really know your shoes and may know . Thanks for your time - DuckOB
Have you considered taking them to have your local cobbler do for you? I took a pair I got from the sample sale to my cobbler to add brass eyelets and my cobbler charged me around $10 or $15. It saves you from a costly screw-up.
