    Feb 21, 2005, 9:07 AM - boot snap question #1

    has anyone had problems with their snaps pulling out of their boot. i have the new reione bots and have not put snaps in there,as in past experience with my bedford stus the snap pulled out.


    my questions are:

    1. do u use the heavy duty snaps found at walmart for $2

    2. or do you use leather snaps

    3. and how does one attach the snap in the boot?

    I dont know anything about Jango, but i know the snaps from wal-mart you have to punch a hole in the material and then it hammers together, and it will not pull out, it would have to rip the whole snap out complety -think a levi's jeans rivet-

    Yup, I had that problem too. I used rivets instead for my last pair of boots and will probably do the same this time.

    BF told me that he got his snaps from Menards. He put some on my boots. They seem to work well.

    I went to my local cobbler armed with a yard of 1" elastic and my boots. He installed snaps on my boots and straps (he provided the leather for the straps as well) for a whopping $10. I used the Walmart snaps on my old boots and they fell off many times. I say if you're spending $200 on your boots, then have a professional do the work for you. You don't really want to mess up those boots ... do you?

    that would be nice and all but there is no cobbler here.
