  1. Aug 6, 2010, 10:43 AM - Toe spike issue?? #1

    Hey guys, ive recentley finished my boba boots the other week, I think there CA boots and ive paired them with russrep toe spikes. Now my issue is that when I walk in them, the toe spikes hit the ground, making a "tinging" noise as they touch the ground.
    Does any one else have this problem or have I put them on wrong? From looking at others boots they look fine to me though.
    Help would be much appreciated,

    only problem I'm having is that mine are BM resin and after 2 years of walking they're getting worn from hitting the ground as my toe bends.

    Cheers for the imput guys, I guess this most be a common thing then which has given me some confidence. I did find that one of my spikes tends to move upwards when walking, sorted with bit of glue though.
