Dropped the Blake Boots in the mail today and thought I'd post this montage to reflect on all the good times we had together. I think they actually worked best without cuffed pants.
Got nothing to wear with my green cords now.
I think the Carmina trees are actually made of oak, not cedar. Since they aren't cedar, which is used for is moisture absorbing properties, it doesn't really matter that they are finished, since oak does not absorb moisture at nearly the rate that cedar does. However, there is a hole bored in the front portion of the tree and the bottom is shaped in such a way that it allows moisture to escape through that hole. They aren't lasted, just size specific.

Thanks for the compliment Yes, in my experience, they are TTS. They actually fit much more like shoes than boots.
