Exactly. CXL in the past few years has almost become the default leather. I still think it's a fantastic leather, but it's reputation is inflated. There are tons of wonderful leathers and the pull-up isn't always the best choice. It's hard to understand why someone would purchase a CXL boot if they aren't actually looking for that rubbed / scuffed look. That is what that particular leather is all about.
