Fok, thanks for putting this together. Looks like a great make-up. Question: will this definitely be stitch down construction? Reason I ask is that the last few CXL boots that have gone up for sale on Viberg's site have had a flat welt. Totally understand if the answer is "we won't know until they're made," but I'd like to know if that's the case before considering them.
Yeah there's just a spot that rubs even though the fit is good and there doesn't feel to be any heel slippage. The spot that wears out on a few of my shoes is the leather, not so much the stitching. It may be lower than the unlined portion on my SDs, but I guess I'm a bit paranoid now. I've see a lined pair and they look very nice. I can see the appeal of a more substantial boot.
