never had my laces rip or even show wear..

Same here.  The only laces I have that are wearing down are on my conservation boots which have all eyelets.  Check for burrs on the eyelets or hooks.

The only lace problem I have with my speed hooks is my cat chewing through them crazy.gif

Damn. Thanks for the answers guys. For some reason my speed hooks made two holes in my laces.

My order for the Ralston George Boot in reverse chamois arrived today. Beautiful leather, the only problem was the strap that holds the buckle came undone. So it's back to UnionMade. Made me cry manly tears!

I have the Tanker boot in cordovan 8 on the Barrie last and I fill out the width fine- I definitely don't want a C width.

I have had speed hooks rip the normal cotton (or whatever fabric they are) Indy boot laces, but I've never had an issue with the flax waxed laces.

Any Aldens on sale this Black Friday?

JCrew has a 25% off sale, but Aldens are excluded.

The Shoe Mart, somehow, has four pairs of...drumroll...

Get in on it ASAP.  You can thank me later...

^I'm going to guess inventory system error of some sort. Very odd that they'd have even this limited stock in when they just cancelled all the preorders, but someone needs to buy a pair to find out, right.smile.gif
