    Thanks for the responses fellas. For now the tabs will stay put. I am always reluctant to remove a permanent part of a boot/shoe - even if, for me, the part serves no functional purpose.

    I'm sure you can send it to Nick V. and he can take care of that easily if you eventually want it gone. Sometimes things are better left to professionals.

    It would probably be easier and more aesthetic to put a few neat stitches through the pull tabs so they wouldn't jut out.

    You may have a rough edge or burr on the metal. You should be able to find it and a light file will help.

    I particularly like the Galway style pull tab. Don't mind trousers getting stuck behind them.

    Speaking of Galways...

    Never realized that you have a single sole on yours. They don't make HAF soles anymore right?

    Haha, yeah I'll get back to you with some pics once they're cleaned & polished. No spit-shine though, doesn't suit them.

    No, I don't think they do HAF soles anymore. Topdrawer only I guess.

    My understanding is that the Galway currently sold at BB has a HAF sole.
