    I was actually happy to hear that the boots have speed hooks, but I can understand how others on the order might not be. I paid for mine yesterday and am looking forward to them arriving at my door hopefully before the weekend. :slayer:

    I had the same thing with mine, about half of them had a small metal part that was sticking out on them in the eyelet. I took a small screwdriver and pushed back and forth a time or two on the sharp part that was sticking up and they broke off. I was a little worried at first that it would mess something up, but it appeared it was just extra metal on the eyelet. and the inside is fine and a full circle.

    Look for "rat tail" file. If you go to the hardware store, in the tool section, you may also find a small kit of mini files. They usually come in a small carrying wallet and are various shapes and sizes. One of those should do the trick.

    Tempting, but living in Chicago demands a commando sole (well except for this year; easiest winter I've ever been through). To everyone who grabbed them, let's see some pics when the boots arrive.

    Why would it demand a commando sole? I spend $15 per pair on topys that easily make it through a new england winter - granted, I don't particularly go looking for bad areas to slosh around in when there's ice and snow all about.

    Just not a fan of topying, even if they nail it on.
