Realized the first photos were lack luster, so did a quick moist cloth cleaning, and stepped into the sunshine for these:  
Just posted some updated photos, coming up on 1 year of wear and tear.   http://www.styleforum.net/t/219173/custom-whites-boots-thoughts/6675#post_7841144
Question for you all.  I've some Chromexcel SDs, and love them.  How have your Chromexcel tonques held up?  Should I get some tongue protectors?  I'm not overly keen on the look, but don't want the laces to blow through the tongues requiring an early rebuild of the boots.   Getting on close to a year with these now, worn 2-4 times a week, and I'm getting worried about the tongue wearing through.  The leather tongues seems supper thin and supple.   When they were new,...

I will try to post aging photos, break in, wear and tear thoughts along the way.  Took me a good long while to come to grips with "mail ordering" boots this expensive.  But Baker's totally took care of me and "held my hand" to get me to bite the bullet and go for it.  Size is basically right on compared to the trial boots they sent me.  Just a little pressure on my right pinkie toe, which existed in the second trial pair they sent out.   What kills me is that these are...
