    Nice. I like that setup. I'll be going by my cobbler/leather guy's place later this week. My Addisons might need something like this done to them.

    The vibrams fit perfectly, as if the boots came like that out of the box. Nicely done.

    Does anyone know of a source for the OEM shoelaces that come with the 1000 mile boot. Or at least something of similar or better quality waxed cotton lace? I cannot source anything locally that are as heavy as these.

    Agree with the others- those Viibram soles and heels look great. And they add much more basic functionality, probably longer life as well as increased comfort.
    i m hoping most good shoe repair places can do it proficiently.

    Or, you know, you could buy the Women's model. Pretty sure Leffot was carrying it, at least at some point.

    ok, im starting to think i have a bad pair of shoes. my left boot has developed a major dent in the toe. it feels like it is crushed, you can push the dent out but i goes right back to shape. very strange.

    seriously, check out the picture and tell me thats normal. it makes this weird snapping sound when you push it back into shape. i cant describe it. i dont remember anything hitting it.

    I'm not sure how the Women's specific model differs from the Men's but as Crockostyle indicated above, Leffot does carry the Women's line.

    I am looking to trade $300 at gimmeshoes.com for a new, or lightly used, size 9 pair in rust, W05299. I got the coupon specifically for the rust color, but they only have brown and black :-(. PM me if interested. If this is in the wrong place please delete with my apologies.
