does anyone know where i can get the waxed laces that the beckmans ship /w in different colors?
post #1697 of 1844
I noticed that the flap where the first lace holes are is up further on my left boot when compared to the right......flaw? Wrong size boot? Or just due to the hand made nature.

Ebay for colorful ones or the Red Wings website where you can request replacement laces.

Any deals on the black cherries right now? Please PM me!

Is it normal to have a little slip in the heel?

RW's leather takes a polish nicely.

Very nice! In my opinion, a broken-in and worn Beckman looks better than when they are new.

BTW, have anyone added/replaced their Beckman (or any 6" boots for that matter) with Cuban heel?

I've been wondering the same thing. May be a question for a good cobbler like Nick at B. Nelson.

Thanks!

 

How new are yours? Mine slipped a little but that eventually went away. If it's persistent, wear thicker socks or add an insert, as it's too big.

They are a couple days old.
If i lace up to the very top, the slip is pretty minimal
I put a slim insole in there already.

They just arent super tight fitting everywhere, i can still wiggle my toes a little - where as the half size down was really narrow on my foot/toes

I think it may go away after some breakin. Keep us updated.

I am digging those higher-than-usual heel found on logger boots.

Below is Wolverine Austen that has the same idea. inlove.gif

i have had my GT'S for about 8 weeks, the more i wear them the better they fit, as far as insoles go SUPERFEET black, they are very thin. i can move my toes alittle more than i would like, but a half size smaller would not work, that is why i use the insoles, they are snug whithout being tight. i think if you are patient, and give them time it will work well for you.
