post #226 of 228

 

I got exactly the same pair of Double Monk on their winter sale. Overall the fit / quality is very good. However, it seems there is a wooden nail missing on the left out sole(on beveled waist). I am not sure if it is critical to affect daily use(on rainy day, for example.), Should I keep it or ask for a replacement? thanks in advance, guys.

Thats a definite invitation for dirt and moist to go in. Any shoemaker will be able to put a new nail in though if the hole inside is not damaged. In any case you should contact the store and get their opinion. They should cover the costs whether its local repair or u shipping them back for xchange. Personally I wouldnt go outside with a nail missing from the sole.

Thanks a lot for your input, MCT358 :) 

 

I spoke to Victor, the Sales person at 7L, he said it is not a big deal(the nails are for decoration purpose only) and eventually i have it solved by myself. Result is quite acceptable at least to me... Very simple to do, frankly, i put the steps here for anyone had this kind of problem (it is minor but still annoying), hope it helps:

 

1. i used a deformed u-clip to measure the depth of the hole, cut a tooth stick tip to match the measurement.

2. use u-clip tip carefully insert small amount of glue inside the hole.

3. insert tooth stick tip inside the hole, use a looney's edge gently press it in to flatten. then use dark shoe cream to color it in order to fade it out among the others.(i used my GF's nail oil :)  

4. et voilà!
