The speed hooks on my jumper boots are starting to cut through the laces that came with the boots. Any advice on alternate laces ?

Buy a lot of them? Speedhooks on my Carmina boots eat up everything I've tried. I guess I'd also like to hear good suggestions.

Are Carmina's exotic leathers like Lizard real? Or are these just regular calfskin that has been "embossed" to create an exotic pattern?

I recommend Laccico laces and 2,5 mm. I also have shell jumper boots and the original laces was ripped within a two weeks. I've tried 2,0 mm laces, but they are a bit thin and they will break within a few months.

I’m at around 60 days waiting on the color 4 MTO. I figured it would slow around this time and 45 days might be unlikely but are others still waiting and, if so, have they heard anything? Really just want to be sure it didn’t fall between the cracks somehow.

Yup, I'm still waiting for my pair as well. Haven't heard anything but then again I haven't reached out to ask, either.

My order was shipped on December 29 and delivered in early Jan.

Still waiting on mine as well. I had pushed them on the amaretto timing then had massive QC issues, so I’m fine with taking the patient approach this time.
