Got new pair of Lacrose Alphas last year and while scouting some new property the other day I got tangled in some old barbwire. Man I was sick as I cut a small slit about 1/4 inch long on the top about 2 inches from the toe. Paid like $110 for these and love them so can someone PLEASE tell me I can fix these. I thought about an old tire patch, I mean as a boy we would repair tubes so why won't it work in this case? Anyone that knows please give me some good news. Thanks!
