What can you do about closed speed hooks? I got a pair of Indys and they had one speed hook that was really closed, so I returned them. My replacement pair had two speedhooks that were bent down / closed -.-

Maiden voyage.

C-ring pliers. Wear your boots into a hardware store and "borrow" a pair off of the shelf.  They are built for spreading c-rings and are essentially backwards working needle-nose pliers.  They start out closed, and when you squeeze the handle they spread outward.

I just unbend mine with a butter knife. They are somewhat plyable.

+1.  That is why I like the c-ring pliers.  They spread from the inside out, so they put equal pressure on both sides of the speed hook, and they won't scratch the outside of the speed hooks either.

Yes - Aberdeen. I am extremely pleased with them.

I know this has been covered a million times, but in a lace-up Aberdeen you go TTS? I am a 9.5D TTS and wear a 9D Barrie. I do however remember sizing down a half on the BB Cordo Tassel, hence the question. I am mulling over a NST which I have never owned or tried on. Thanks for your reply.

I am TTS in both the Aberdeen tassel loafers and the Aberdeen NST

Me too.  You may want to consider the NST on the barrie from TSM, if you're worried about aberdeen sizing issues.

I think the Aberdeen might be my last as I have low volume feet as in thin but D width. shog[1].gif
