Around 5 months ago I purchased some Brasher Hillmaster GTX walking boots. I have been carefully wearing these in, ready for my Camino , which starts on May 3rd.
The rivet holding one of the lace rings has pulled through the leather (!). I am now panicking has I don't have time to wear- in any replacements. Is this fixable? Any advice gratefully recieved.

You could try a shoemaker or shoe repair shop if there are any in your area. There are still some operating here and they are very good for most repairs.
Not sure if I would walk with questionable footwear. Seek a pair that will need less breaking in. Take it from a postman!!

If they can be repaired properly there is no reason not to use them, breaking in new boots on a walk is not recommended.
