Looks good to me. Nice leather too!
Nothing fancy here, but here's a pic of my 403s after about 10 wears. I am very happy with the CXL, which doesn't seem to have any of the problems that you sometimes see on it.
Maybe they farmed out a batch to Dayton..?
 A ten inch boot sounds like a bear to get on and off to me, but I've never had a pair that tall so I don't know.  By all accounts the distressed smooth is tough and durable.  I probably would not get it lined.  I got my CXLs lined to keep them from stretching, and I think that was the right choice, but I'd like a pair that was unlined in the shaft I think.  Also, i would not recommend CXL for a winter chore boot.  I know some people will object, but it's clearly not a...

Looking at this pic,     It makes me wonder if the eyelet alignment problem is related to the one main problem that I see not infrequently with Viberg, which is a sort of built in pronation, or inward lean, which gets the boots/shoes off kilter in the same way as above.  I saw it in two of the four pairs I've owned (one very strongly), but also here you can see it in the boots/shoes in the front of this pic too:
