I ordered, and just received yesterday, the beautiful Petrie Coventry boot in cognac and they’re truly lovely. I put them on to start the breaking-in process, and the lower left snap popped open when I took a step. Obnoxious, but it’s started to get better with conditioning. Today, I put them on again, this time just over two pairs of socks with shorts on, and started doing those wonderful stair calf-drops when I noticed the boots felt a little different, looked closer and saw the heights between boots are noticeably different.
I paid $379.59 and waited a month for them. Here are pictures I took to show the height difference: http://postimg.org/gallery/oo4if6aq/
The owner was very helpful in instruction on sizing and they fit in the foot and calf as they should. He told me to put silicone spray on the snap, but I don’t see how that would help keep it from popping open and now I notice the height discrepancy. What do I do in this situation? Send them both back to the Netherlands? Find a local cobbler and request reimbursement? I have a perfect right boot and it’s black sheep left sister.
