Unabashed, avowed buckle-hater here. They look great on the shelf, but I swear they were invented by the Devil. I've been seduced by their siren-song before, and yet when trying to put them on they ALWAYS move to the most awkward position where I can't get my too-short arms with my too-fat-and-clumsy fingers to wherever they decide to twist round to. The fuckers get me EVERY. SINGLE. GODDAMN. TIME - while the shop assistant rolls his eyes (and probably tweets surreptitious pics with a hashtag like #pigcontortionistfail to his sniggering followers.)

I shudder to think what kind of sobbing, helpless mess a button-boot would leave me in.

Yes, I am a Neanderthal with a one-track fixation on pointy-lasted oxford-style lace-ups. lol8[1].gif

Till this very day.
I do not know how to use the button hook for my EB button boots.

They lie as I have received them.
In the box.
I love them, but haven't quite gotten down to wearing them yet.

Technical difficulties.

Good lord - putting on a belt every morning must be so traumatic for you! :-)

There's a YouTube video that shows how. It's pretty easy. I doubt it takes me more than about 3 minutes from both boots off to both boots on and fully buttoned. I actually timed it once but can't remember the exact number.

Leaving such awesome boots unworn borders on criminal - but as you have a zillion other pairs, you get a pass. ;-)

They tend to make belt buckles bigger'n shoe buckles. It's like Duplo vs Lego. lol8[1].gif

Pfft - compared to threading a shoelace through an eyelet I would think a shoe buckle represents a comparatively large and easy target. :)

Don't get me started on trying to thread a shoelace through an eyelet on-the-hoof....
