Anyone ever had, or know if field boots-no zipper- can be adjusted through the calf and ankle? Mine are really larger than I'd like. They're Elite GP's. Thx.

I don't know where you are, but I the exact same thing (calf/ankle) done at Vogels (NYC) a couple of weeks ago. I tried them on, they showed me what they would take off, quickly altered one of them, let me try it again, and made final adjustments. I picked them up a couple of days later (Mon-Thurs, I think). Be aware, they can take more off the calf than the ankle (they can't go all the way to the bottom). It cost $100 which I felt was pretty reasonable considering how much they took off.

ETA: Mine were Der Dau's. I don't know if that makes a difference.

Great to know! I'm not too far from Aiken, SC. I'll check into it.
