    It's a zipper on the back. He was with his girlfriend and I didn't want to bother them. Either way, I'm just looking for a nubuck boot that has a similar silhouette to the W+H x Dayton (which IMO is one of the nicest boots I've ever seen).

    I want a day-use bag, not an overnight bag
    Just something to throw a camera, glasses, paper notebook, tablet, wallet, keys, water bottle, etc. in

    I have a JAS MB medium traveller that is roughly the same size as as GB2-3 that I use for weekend trips, but it's too big to carry around daily

    bought a pair of boots off yoox and they're a little big (got 11, would have liked a 10.5 but only had a 10)...any way to reduce the amount of shifting while walking in an effort to keep these?

    Insole is the first thing you should try. If the boots aren't way too big, insoles should help.

    Tacco luxus leather insoles are pretty good http://www.tacco.de/index.php?shop&ID=1&art=613

    So I finally pulled the trigger on a pair of Avantindietro Field W2 (ankle) boots. However after a few days of wear I really think it lacks support in the ankle area. Especially on the inside. Probably because it only has two eye-lets on the inside compared to three on the outside. Anyway. Has anyone else pondered about this and made extra holes for the laces? Seems like the right thing to do imo. Boots are nice, though I still need to find a proper way to tie around the laces without them going up from time to time...eh?

    I've got the same boots. You're right about the support. Well, maybe it depends on the leather. Mine are lamb; pliant and soft. Not for running in that's for sure. As for the laces, how do you mean they go up? Ocassionaly they'll come loose if I haven't wrapped them right and I'll leave a thin leather tail in my wake. You aren't wrapping them around the shaft of the boot are you?

    This is how mine look when laced:
