I am local, and I actually went to their factory to be measured when I had my boots made somewhere around 12 years ago. They were made nearly 2" too big around. While they corrected the problem, the Spanish top (I would have done Olympic, had I been better informed) is slightly off center now and it bothers me. If the same thing happened today, I would have them totally remake the boots.
I have hardly worn mine, but was thinking of bringing them in to see if what could be done to make me like them better.[/QUOTE]
I’m kind of in the same boat. I had mine measured at the shop in Omaha. When they shipped to my new place on the east coast, I ended up with boots that really are too wide for my leg, and I was pretty disappointed to see how short they were on me (don’t contact the back of my knee) as well. So I’ve had them over a year now, haven’t ridden in them much, I don’t love how they look (the swagger tabs got left off too, that’s a whole other issue) and they just sit in my closet because I haven’t gotten around to packing them back up and shipping them back to Dehner now that I’ve moved from the area.
I’m not opposed to them taking the boots in and adding a trim type of leather to the top to make them taller, I just can’t decide if I want that or if I just should unload them to get something else. I wanted a more traditional boot that would last forever, unfortunately I’m just not thrilled. My hunting buddies have Dehners that are beautiful and wore like steel, never heard anything but the highest of praise so I guess from time to time stuff happens.
