it is impossible for a bal boot to have speedhooks i would think...
it wouldn't make sense structurally

Both seem structurally sound, and sexy to boot!

Although I don't believe I could wear these (short legs and big calves) I strongly approve of this bal boot.

Yep. Too much human work from manufacturer's side ended up with a blemish! #firstworldproblem shog[1].gif

its no biggie. plus with the rare shell/rare models, you kind of have to take the good with the bad.

Relevant user name? haha.

That's what I thought, although I thought only men worked at the dirty part of Horween Tannerary (from the documentaries that I watched biggrin.gif )

I am looking at the bump real closely, and the coat is thorough; without making a slit, pulling out the hair would not be possible. Would you suggest doing this, or should I contact J Gilbert about this?

Thanks for response

New acquisition, Alden 639 LWB Alpine Grain Truflare Last

 

This is actually more comfortable than the Modified last if you can believe that.
