 Thanks.  I actually purposefully selected them for two reasons: 1.  They were plain toe and most of my Vibergs are cap toe.2.  I liked that the soles were different from anything else I have. IRL, the "off-balance" nature of the boots really doesn't present itself too much.  It's mostly in the pics, I'm realizing.
 Interesting to go with veldt on the 202.  Guess that's why it was a level 2, huh? What leather did they make it with instead of the Utah?
 Love that chestnut Utah!
Took some pics of the black pit tanned bisons.  My earlier impression was correct; these boots are beasts. Although they are on the "dressier" 2030 last, each boot weighs in at over 2lbs!  And that's for my small boot size (7).  Also as expected, these boots aren't really totally black.  At first glance, they do look black but are really a very deep, dark brown.  The midsole combination with the Vibram 705 1/2 sole is really thick.

Looking forward to receiving my belated Xmas present to myself, from the RMDH auction --- pit tanned bison Service Boots.  And thanks to everyone who contributed suggestions as to what to select from Notre's stock.
Does EG line Galways in CC?  Or are they unlined like Galways in Utah?   I concur with the comments that Utah is extremely comfortable from day one.  EG's Utah leather is really a high quality leather.
