    I agree, I saw them on the Matches site and thought I have never seen anything like this before. I would never be able to wear them.

    Slightly off topic, but do you boot guys have any tips on how to tie the laces so they stay closed? I think my problem is related to the speedhooks, I either lace them so tight that the hooks pull the knot open when I walk, or I tie them a little bit loose, in which case the laces slip off the hooks entirely.

    I don't own dress boots but with my Army boots I always tied square knots and tucked the excess in the shaft.

    I have never had a problem even when I tie the lace to the second last hook ( I mean not right up to the top) , I always at the end tie a double not and even after eleven hours on my feet the knot is still in place.

    I know I posted a link earlier but just wanted to post a picture of the shoe as well. Anyone for this MTO?

    Give it a toe cap and heel counter and I'd be in!

    I've actually already asked Skoaktiebolaget if they have these in stock. Similar, with cap toe and heel counter. I want both :-D

    I'd be interested in hearing more. I've got a couple other things in the pipeline so it would depend on how/if those unfold.

    I think we should probably give the luxury of the MTO to skoaktiebolaget since they inspired it in the first place. I'll make them aware of the thread so far.


    Sweet. That makes.. two and a half? :-D
