How can I not be in for this? I need to read back some more to confirm sizing. I think I am seriously addicted to this game. Really not good for my retirement funds.
^^ Glad you finally got them, hoit!  They look pristine and fabulous!
     Thanks for all your helpful input, guys.  I've been reading about the waxed flesh makeup but I think everyone is leaning towards the 2045 last, right?  Not sure if I want that last as the first Viberg I get.  But it may be wise to not be too picky as these are hard to come by.
   I will, I will. I actually have not been very good at adhering to the so-called break-in regimen.  I don't live in a city where walking is a way of life and I pretty much have to drive to get anywhere.  Having said that, the whiskeys are barely creasing, which is surprising me.  I've bought new shell where after the first try-on and just a few steps, caused decent creases.  I don't mind creases and I actually like the worn-in look much better. Other than boots I intend...

 I didn't interpret it as that was what he purchased.  Thought it was a PSA.  And that he purchased something else.  Or maybe I just had a doh moment.
 Leather soles, particular double leather soles, are usually quite stiff when very new.  If you wear them out on asphalt, concrete and other rough surfaces, your gait will not bend the soles very much as they're still quite stiff.  That could cause undue and accelerated wear at the toe edge.  If you break them in on carpet for the first few wears, the soles will flex more easily so as to decrease the wear at the toes when you finally do wear them out. At least, so goes the...
 Munky, another post where you just crack me up!   Sometimes, you just have these one-liners that are so perfect and match with what you're posting about.  But I am sure you are just as intelligent and sophisticated as you look!  A perfect British gentleman.
