Could someone give me some more specifics as to how I can get this fixed by having the tongue stitched down to the vamp? I couldn't find anything in this thread on this subject (maybe I'm not too adept at searching on SF yet). It would seem that if I have a cobbler stitch the tongue to the vamp, wouldn't the stitching show through to the outside causing a not so visually appealing result? I'm sure if people are doing this, there must be a way to do it without it looking bad.
I thought about having a cobbler attach (not sure what you call it) one of those strips on the tongue that the laces pass through to hold the tongue in place but because these have 5 eyelets and 4 speed hooks, that "thing" would have to be sewn too low on the tongue to do much good (I wouldn't want to have to lace through this "thing" up at the level of the speed hooks each time I put on the boots.
Thanks for any suggestions or info.
