    I've got 5 pairs of Carmina, each on different last, all tagged 11UK, and each pair squeeks in the heel area

    Namor, where are those trousers from? That leg opening looks ideal.

    Pretty much dealt with it like any other trouble in my life: I downplay it or pretend its not there and hope it goes away

    Lower leg slimmed down at all? If not, I'll have to hop over to BB once I come home.

    I love my black scotch grain boots with dainite sole, they are extremely comfortable and do well in the ice/slush. I would be interested in ordering these boots for next fall/winter but unsure about the lacing, what about speed hooks once past the ankle?

    This just popped up on skoabs site. I am amazed at how much the second texture adds to the black on black bal boot.

    Why bother? Those boots only have one eyelet more than the bal boots, which have 6 eyelets and 4 speedhooks on each side.

    Sorry to hear that, man! That said, three weeks is not long at all and you'll have them before you know it. Did they mention the reason for the delay?

    Mine too. A bit strange that some shoes are delayed three weeks in the same order...

    Heel Stops.


    They work. I have a wide forefoot and small heel - these do wonders.

    ^ If you were in NY I could offer you a good therapist, too.
