    it is impossible for a bal boot to have speedhooks i would think...
    it wouldn't make sense structurally

    Both seem structurally sound, and sexy to boot!

    On the CTA
    

    Although I don't believe I could wear these (short legs and big calves) I strongly approve of this bal boot.

    Yep. Too much human work from manufacturer's side ended up with a blemish! #firstworldproblem :embar:


    Relevant user name? haha.

    That's what I thought, although I thought only men worked at the dirty part of Horween Tannerary (from the documentaries that I watched :D )

    I am looking at the bump real closely, and the coat is thorough; without making a slit, pulling out the hair would not be possible. Would you suggest doing this, or should I contact J Gilbert about this?

    Thanks for response

    New acquisition, Alden 639 LWB Alpine Grain Truflare Last

    This is actually more comfortable than the Modified last if you can believe that.
