Nice. Enjoy them, but be ready for the long breakin period. Mine look like the standard brown oil tan when they have a bit on obenauf's on them, but they're actually the distressed smooth.
Awesome news. I'm not in the market, but I'll spread the word to those who would be interested.Another forum you may be interested in joining is Superfuture. They have a section for denim/workwear and that's where all the boot discussion is but it's in a more broad topic called 'shoes that look better with age'.
