I have had these about two years now, but they just don't get worn as the I wear an E or EE due to my high instep.  I'd keep them in a heartbeat if they fit better.  Just took them out of the closet, dusted them off a little and took these pictures this morning.   New are $250.  Asking $185, including paypal fees, and ground shipping.  FYI, the shoe trees are not included.   The official info from the Red Wing site: STYLE NO. 8051 : Foreman Oxford The 8051 is a round...
Of all their oxfords, I like the look of their model 31852 the best.  The others (models 2552,2553) seem too boot like.  And I'd prefer 4 brass eyelets, but that's just me.  Seems to just look cleaner than the five eyelet oxfords.
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,...
From http://www.styleforum.net/t/219173/custom-whites-boots-thoughts/3870#post_7166018 So after three weeks of nearly daily wear here is what they are looking like:  The dimple/crease in the toe looks a little funny in the photos, but just comes across as normal looking creases in person so far. Took about 3 days to break in until I could wear them all day.  Wore them daily for about two weeks, then did the LP, and after a day of "baking" in the car they're back on.  Water...
 Meant to quote.  I'm digging the wear.
Nice.  I'll be getting some updated pics of my SDs up today, after only three weeks of wear.
Are these still available?
Thanks b-ewing.  I was inspired by some photos of a similar setup from I believe bl@ster if I'm not mistaken.  While I initially wanted a more traditional brown, I have a some nice brown shoes, and some nice black Red Wing Oxfords, so decided to expand the color pallet.
