Just like mine. :) You are gonna love those boots. I know I do mine. I get a lot of compliments on all my shoes, but I gotta say, on my first wearing of my Eagle County's I got more comments than any other shoe I own.
I snapped this shot yesterday. I had many compliments on these. I used VSC on the before wearing. This morning after a day in the wild I polished them with a neutral wax polish, really made the shine. Here they are today.I will conservatively use VSC on the wrinkles so the neutral polish does not appear in that milky color.
The do appear a bit lighter in the sunlight. And, to be honest, the do look a hair darker than they are in that pic. It is a odd color to photograph. It either looked to washed out or a hair dark. great fun shoe though. Also looks great with blue laces.
I have taken advantage of it. I have one more MTO to past from last summer. I gotta dig and find the specs for it. I have 29 pairs of AEs, and think I am set for a while, that is until next week when I see something new I want. :)
Walnut Shell Macneil MTO ($595 - seconds were $299)
*BROWN SPLIT REVERSE WELT
*DOUBLE RENDENBACH OUTSOLE
This was my first MTO, and it didn't pass inspection. I fortunately was able to grab them as seconds when they got to the shoe bank. I think the flaw was the way the laces line up on the left shoe. Nonetheless, a great deal at second pricing. I then saw another walnut shell MTO, and decided to change the welt to natural on the remake....
