 I've owned one for well over 10 years and it's been stuffed to the gills for just about every minute of that 10+ years.  It goes with me everywhere and I travel constantly.  Not so much these days but I did for the last 10+ years since I've owned it.  There are pics of it earlier in this thread along with what i have stuffed into it on a regular basis.  You won't wear that thing out anytime soon.  Just use the hell out of it and Saddlesoap the bridle leather once in a...
I use my CWB's for work and it doesn't take long for them to get beat up looking.  Those in the pic look about right for someone who actually wears them for work especially if they are in construction or something where they are crawling around alot and walking on uneven surfaces.  Mine get gouges and scuff in them but luckily brushing them and oiling them hides most of it.  I've been working on a dock lately and they are picking up a lot of "character".  Mine are oil...
I have also figured out that lacing them properly is the key to having them not be uncomfortable.  I was lacing mine way too tight as well.  However, i still think mine are breaking in up around the shaft.  As linafelt pointed out.  If I let mine sit for a few days they are stiff all over again but they loosen up after wearing them for 30 minutes or so.  The brown oil finish CWB's have been far stiffer than my roughout SJ's and they have been worn far more often since I...
Those are beautiful, Ewing.  Damn, it makes me want a pair of Wesco's.
I have a pair of CWB's and from what White's say's on their website it's the same boot with a roomier last than the Farmer Rancher and a shorter height.  From what I have read the Bounty Hunter is an SJ with a different sole than the lugged sole.  It might have the SD last as well but I'm not sure. I could be mistaken so you'd better wait for replies from the experts.
Awesome because I've been driving the same '73 Caddy Coupe DeVille for the last 18 years.  I bet I'll get 20mpg with Huberd's!
I just downloaded that dissertation on preserving leather and am too tired to read it right now so my question is, "What are you doing using Huberd's if the dissertation has to do with silicone oil.  I went to Huberd's site and I don't remember reading anything about silicone oil in their mix. Go ahead, tell me I'm missing something or that I have to read the dissertation in full so I can see that at the very end there is a picture of a can of Huberd's, with a brush, as...
When I bought my SJ's and CWB's 4 or 5 months ago the saleman there told me to try on a few different sizes and then order the size that fit the best.  I only had SJ's to try on but I found the size 11.5D that fit the best.  He told me to make sure the arch support was in the right spot and then had me stand on a step with the boots facing down to see if my toes got crunched.   Once everything was like he said it should be I ordered an 11.5D and they have fit quite...
Yep, that stuff works.  Once you've lost it it does nothing but if you don't want to lose anymore it works great.  It ain't cheap but what is that's worth having.  I'm not even losing my hair and I used it for a few years just because it worked so damn good.
  I'm speechless.
