I currently wear Joe Rocket Meteors and youâ€™ve seen me write what a great value-for-money pair of boots they are. Iâ€™m a pants-in-boots kind of guy (and right glove first) however now the boots are having to cope with thicker socks and long johns the Velcro isnâ€™t coping with the extra width and leaves the boots â€˜openâ€™ at the top. I didnâ€™t want any more Velcro (Iâ€™ve always been secretly scared to ask what they do to crows to make them vel). The solution in my case was to get some additional straps put on by a proper cobbler, Paul at Perth Surgical Shoemakers (whom I was delighted to learn rides a Triumph Speedster). He did a top class job for A$25 and I reckon they look origâ€™. This is what they look like.
