    i assume its because the tongue is sewn into the shoe which makes it harder to pull off but provides good stability

    More just the aesthetic. I hate it if you do a tuck.

    The tongue makes a tuck easier to pull off, to me. I suppose you could tuck them in a way that looks weird but you can do that with any boot.

    Any zip boots in this category that you find particularly comfortable in the instep? My arches are high enough that I usually need an insole, but this always makes the problems worse when the shoes are tight in the instep.
    I'd hit that.

    I've ordered from re-porter. Great experience. Graham is very helpful and ships out your items quickly and will mark down the value if you don't live in Canada.

    yah, I can attest to that as well, he has an extremely high amount of knowledge for what he is selling, and gives you an actual explanation of an item more so than any other retailer/seller I've dealt with. I can feel the passion there, and it comes out with his service.

    i dont tuck anyway, and it doesnt bother me, the tall boot that i returned had the same type of tongue, i thought it was rather cool


    those look used, and they arent showing the sole, i may be wrong
