I got a great deal on a pair of off the rack Der Daus, but unfortunately once they broke in, they were just a bit too short. I love them other than this problem, and I was wondering if it was somehow possible to have them made taller?
What about adding trim? Alligator? I figure if it contrasts a bit then it won't look as if you just did it because they were too short! If you add trim in the same leather, I think it might look funny.
Folks used to do this sort of thing by adding the patent caps or if they hunted, the cordovan/tan/brown color. I think alligator would look cool...I don't know about current trends in the ring but the idea in and of itself just sounds cool!
Fine I give up, do it your way: heels up, eyes down!!
Der Dau would do it, but that might be pricey. Any other bookmaker. If you go to a cobbler, I would really look for a place that's highly recommended. I would probably start by talking to the folks at my local tack shop.
