Has anyone with a size 8 foot bought any of the CHUP socks? I typically stay away from socks that are sized 8-12 as at a size 8, they're usually a bit big on me. I'd like to get some CHUPs but am hesitant.
I was pleasantly surprised when reading the latest EP Communique that Mike used a picture of mine of the unfinished HH high tennis trainers. It was like, "Hey, those are my stairs!". I say "pleasantly" surprised because my photography skills are nonexistent compared to most others on SF.
btw, I am loving the trainers.
^^ You can't go wrong with either of them. I have the washed/sanded ones in khaki/tan so I can't speak too much for the fading but they are super soft and have a great feel to them. I have 8oz canvas ones in navy and they do fade nicely if that's what you want. Also very soft with maybe a softer feel than the washed/sanded ones. But really too little a difference.
Having said all that, I'd go with the washed/sanded ones.
I was wondering if it was the light since the chestnut Utah on mine (64) are not nearly as brown/red as yours. I have only treated mine with Bick 4, so no pigment. That would explain it. Yours look gorgeous.
