A win and a loss

Strapping a pair of boots after lasting (that leather piece wrapped over the boot) is almost an admission of defeat for me; it means that I wasn’t able to last it quite as well as I wanted and I’m trusting the strap to do the final bit. On the other hand, ostrich leather is usually a pain to last and often requires a strap. The good news is that the boots are standing up straight! With a boot this tall, if they’re at all crooked it shows up in a big way.
