Congrats, I think you will love them. I have the ones from Viberg and I am quite happy with them. It's my first exposure to Aged Bark and I was surprised to find that it's essentially a nubuck type leather. So unless you want to get rid of the very fine nap, you really can't condition them. Or maybe you can? I know the nap will come back with wear. I'm curious as to what others with aged bark are doing/going to do.
