That is a good question. I guess they could claim mis-use. Just playing devil's advocate. But boots like that should be able to handle repeated ties! Honestly, thanks to this forum, I have seen this before and for that reason I try not to yank on my speedhooks. Besides...I loathe speedhooks, but sometimes you just don't have a choice.

Maybe you could get in touch with Alden and include some pictures instead of just sending them in. Get a feel for what they say, first.
If they were my boots, I definitely would not wear them anymore until I got it resolved.

Yeah I just sent thanks. Hopefully they can do something. Will be a pain as I live in Canada

Just curious - how come you loathe speedhooks?  Is it an aesthetic thing?

I just don't like the way they look. I admit, I like the functionality. I just hate the asthetics.

These look great Tifosi! I haven't broken mine in yet; I also have to work up the stones to wear them out. ..

I understand exactly where you are coming from. I hate taking my new babies out. But they are shoes, so you gotta let them walk... :-) Once they are out a time or two, I get over it and try and enjoy them...

Hmm mine is the opposite.

I only have one pair now. Unlined color-8 PTB.

And it doesn't have the stamp.

If they happen to cut the shell on the part with the stamp...then there is a stamp...

You are both sporting some very nice kicks today. I think more designs should sport the 8/antique look. I think it is killer, but I love antique to no end.
