Oh, then yes. You can see the logo where it meets the vibram sole.
Sounds pretty typical for a nylon strap. Post images of the custom leather once you get it made.
A number of custom made straps have been posted to this thread in the past. As indicated, best to find a cobbler or someone used to working with leather - saddle/tack maker, etc. Just found an example of custom strap on the first page of this thread Moving away from a leather strap. Filson make a nylon strap for some of their bags, it may be possible to buy one of these. There are also some less dressy solutions, such as op/tech's SOS (Save on Shoulders) straps.
First off, fantastic write up.When using the shoulder strap do you wear it across the body or just hanging from one shoulder ?When I am in Road Warrior mode with a full 258 then wearing across the body is easier and less painful for me. Maybe not a neat looking as off one shoulder, but certainly more comfortable.As the Filson thin strap and pad that is prone to slip can be annoying at times, some folks also replace the strap with something wider to spread the weight.
Not wishing to appear rude or repetitive here, but all that is required is to cut down the long strap and to punch some additional holes. My local cobbler charges US$8 for this to new customers and somewhat less for those of us that frequent him more often.
I will wager that it not end well if the OP buys off the shelf RMW.
Different leathers will crease differently of course, but perhaps these boots are simply not for you.
You want the boots to crease, to mould to the way in which your foot bends as you walk. Boot trees may help minimise the creasing and help the boot keep its shape, but once worn the creases will be obvious.If you want a smooth finish, you are best looking for a material which will crease less.
