    Default Tredstep Paddocks question

    Quick question - was wearing my Tredstep Paddocks yesterday when I realized that the right boot tongue is stitched on one side keeping it in place while the left is not so it flaps around when unzipped. I know that's a bit OCD of me but is this the way they are made or do I have a defective pair?? Other than that I absolutely love these boots - most comfortable pair of paddocks ever!

    Just looked at mine. Both tongues are sewed so I do think you got a defective pair! And I have to agree... So comfy!!!!

    not to hijack. But are they wearing well. I can't stand spending another dime on a pair of Ariats that will fall apart in a year.

    Love mine! Stand my abuse for over a year when the $200 ariats lasted 6 months. Hope for another year.

    Something is a bit different about the tongues on mine, I'll have to look closer when I put them on.

    Well I spoke with smartpak and looks like I did get a defective pair with a flappy left tongue ! They are out of stock but will be getting more in May so told me to keep wearing them until then and they will exchange them when they come in. Once again - Smartpak to the rescue - they seriously are THE best online retailer ever!

    That's good, LoriW. Glad they're helping you out. And for what it's worth, I LOVE mine. I liked them so much I also bought their field boots and they feel like they were custom made for me. Love Tredsteps!
