Any tricks?

pull. moar.

I did that on my 404's and within the first month snapped a lace. I think a speedhook may have frayed some of the threads in the flat lace. When I got them back from Alden when they fixed the vibram sole issue, they put new laces on...

Wait until you get old and all will become clear. Or, google lacing.

This is nice! But I tend to lace them around my ankles

Are these cap toe boots only made for J.Crew? Specifically, with the perf on the cap. Does anyone else sell them?





Link to J.Crew website

Anyone on SF have a pair? Absolutely gorgeous IMHO.

How much are the wallets? Don't mean to pry, but I couldn't find a listing on the LeatherSoul site. Thanks.

I prefer a commando soul on that boot (albeit this one doesn't have the perforated cap):
