    Boot guys. One of the speed hooks on my Vass boots is gonna break. Has anyone had hooks replaced with eyelets by a cobbler/did it themselves?

    I haven't but this happens in the Alden thread all the time. I think I've read where they aren't quite aligned or straight with the others after doing so, but it's certainly possible.

    Most cobblers will have a stock of hooks, but you may have trouble getting a match.

    right here, for now
    you could likely do it yourself with an eyelet tool, good weight hammer and an anvil or other solid surface
    you may have to go oversize on the eyelet tho.

    assuming short boots count . . . . here's a Bemer chukka delivered today.

    Nice looking chukkas. Where did you get these from if you don't mind me asking and how do you rate the quality of suede that they use?

    mto straight from Bemer with Mr. Melani the nap isn't as short or silky as Carmina which is all I have to compare it to 1 on 1.
    i think it's just right for a chukka style first day wearing it but I am betting it's going to be pretty sturdy
    their workmanship is VERY good
