    I just unbend mine with a butter knife. They are somewhat plyable.

    +1. That is why I like the c-ring pliers. They spread from the inside out, so they put equal pressure on both sides of the speed hook, and they won't scratch the outside of the speed hooks either.

    I know this has been covered a million times, but in a lace-up Aberdeen you go TTS? I am a 9.5D TTS and wear a 9D Barrie. I do however remember sizing down a half on the BB Cordo Tassel, hence the question. I am mulling over a NST which I have never owned or tried on. Thanks for your reply.

    I received these yesterday, courtesy of Alcibiades! This is my first pair of shell and I know this is going to become an unhealthy problem. At any rate, I love this thread and will continue to admire and envy some of you!

    Aberdeen NST is TTS. Aberdeen slip-on, for me, is same size, but down in width.
