Cigar Captoe's from Alden DC arrived today. Grant last, commando sole. Let the break-in process commence.
Sorry for the iphone photos and poor lighting. Maybe I'll snap more in natural light tomorrow.
Flash (having rotation issues)
Just got a pair of Ravello shell boots and a couple of the speed hooks are loose after one wear. Is this normal?
This sort of tearing is one of the reasons I had the speedhooks replaced with eyelets. Eventually the leather will start to tear. it is probably something that you should address sooner rather than later. Do you lace your boots tightly? I do and I believe that may have contributed to the problem.
