Just got a pair of Ravello shell boots and a couple of the speed hooks are loose after one wear. Is this normal?

Thanks, Namor and Uncle Mac for you kind comments! I am really happy with how they turned out. I am also glad that Alden relasted them to an 11C --- fits like a glove!

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.
