The Dreaded Tongue Problem Solved!

4

I have been eyeing up these boots for over two years now (even knowing about the tongue issue), and so the other day when I walked by the Eddie Bauer store and saw the "entire store on sale" sign, I went in. Imagine my surprise when these were in the clearance area, marked down by 60%! With a new net price equivalent to $60 US (I know, right?), I thought I could live with some discomfort, but couldn't - so I took matters into my own hands.What you will need:- Leather softener (I used Neatsfoot Oil)- One or more pairs of needle-nosed vise-grips- A few days, and some patience1: Remove the laces.2: Work the softener into the folded area near the top of the tongue on both sides. Don't skimp on the softener… dry leather will snap back into original shape.3: Re-lace the boots properly, so that you can really reef on the laces. Put on the boots, and tighten the laces until you are about to cry.4: Wear the boots for a couple hours or so. This is so that you create the appropriate creases in the tongue where you will be using the vise-grips to flatten the bunched leather. What you are looking for, is a nicely pronounced V on each side of the tongue. Remove the boots.5: Take your vise-grips and clamp onto the bottom of the V, along the fold in the leather, so that the jaws are clamping a couple of cms or so of leather fold. Clamp them as tight as they will go. Leave for a few hours (or overnight).Repeat step 5 on the other side of the tongue, and for any area on the fold where you are experiencing discomfort, particularly the lateral seam on the tongue. I have done this about 4-5 times for each boot.Overall, great looking boots, with decent build quality; I love the retro look with the red laces. Do they have the support and features for summit attempts? Not really... but they make great fall/winter boots that look great trail-walking with the dog, hitting the aprés ski scene, or just wandering around town. When on sale or clearance, you can't do better.

Not a Danner ... not by a longshot

Not at all pleased with these boots. Right boot was fine but the left had several manufacturing problems in the welt and tongue. Very uncomfortable... painful actually. These were returned after worn in the house for 2 days to try to figure them out. Would not recommend.

Beautiful Boot-Fatal Design Flaw

2

I bought these boots after carefully weighing out the reviews-a beautiful boot, a great value, BUT consistent complaints about the design of the tongue and how it impacts the fit. All of the above are true...The boots are gorgeous. Love the color, the build, the leather. The value is remarkable, compared to competitors options, especially when purchased for 40 percent off:)The fit... These boots are true to size. They fit my narrow feet. I did add liners to take up some of the space in the roomy toe box. The issue... the tongue issue is real, an AWFUL design. Too much leather that bunches up when you tighten the laces, putting pressure on the foot, rendering the boots almost unwearable. Overall assessment-These are boots I'd wear to grab coffee or enjoy a happy hour. They are beautiful and a fashion accessory. The tongue design renders them totally unusable for their intended purpose... being out on a trail. I couldn't imagine walking around in them for more than 20 minutes, let alone attempting to trek in them, that would be agonizing. I hope Eddie Bauer sorts this out. Your feedback is consistent-beautiful boot, terrible design flaw that needs to be remedied.

I'm looking forward to wearing these in some rougher weather. So far, with only indoor wear, I'm pleased with it. Fit is true to size with midweight wool socks and sock liners.I was surprised at how stiff the toe box is... these could almost pass as steel-toes.
