This is the bottom view of a pair of lasted boots. Occasionally I have problems with water spots when I last in the toe of a boot. I’ve started completely lasting in the toe area when I last the boot, then I never wet the leather again. Since the leather has already formed I don’t have to wet it after I put in the toe box.

    The finishing is really nice but I wonder if these boots will be comfortable to wear.

      Don’t worry–all the tacks will be removed before the sole is put on. The tacks are only there to hold the leather as it’s drying. They won’t become a part of the boot.
