    Quick question... Picked up these 20 year old Frye boots. I am not familiar with cowboy/western boot construction. These boots have a leather sole that wraps around the arch. What is this type of construction called? And what is it's purpose? Thanks!

    I don't even know if that's true, but it seems like it makes perfect sense.

    If you hear back, can you post or PM what she says? Her sizing is wonky on many of those. I'd like a pair, but don't know which sizing to go with.

    In fairness, you tie literally 85 of them every week.
    I mean, I agree with the principle, it's just that you meet the 10,000 hour rule in far less time that most mortals.


    Fucking.

    Epic.

    And incidentally, Spoo comes up with yet another great idea for the thread .... (thanks Big Daddy)

    To be clear, it was not Linda's error in my case, it was Edwin. These are NWT and the tags said 32L. They are sanforized so shrinkage is minimized a bit.

    Tie box idea sounds great, even (or perhaps especially.... Given the history of tie boxes) with the brand list restrictions...

    No you push your heels down to ride, don't need anything special. I think those are Dalton Stitch Fryes which were marketed as a motorcycle riding boot.

    Re: Thoughts while reading Tie Box #2
    Page 1: well this seems like a cool idea.
    Page 3: wow they are moving the box relatively quickly
    Page 5: how bad can it be really?
    Page 7: what a stupid idea.
