Mike, I recently acquired a pair of last years McNairy field boot in the black waxy cowhide. I'm amazed I found a pair for sale, they look awesome in person! Before I put them to use I was wondering if you had any suggestions as to how I should treat them? (have never had "waxed" leather footwear before) thanks

How's that even possible? srsly. they aren't going to stay pristine forever, homey. if thats your thing, don't buy workboots. and don't wear any of your shoes ever for that matter.

+1 i almost purchased a pair ahead of this fall/winter and I'm glad I didn't. I can't see these being a good choice anywhere where there can be rain/snow daily like here in the northeast. I have a pair of redwing GT's that have treated me well through two winters in Boston/NYC and they (still) feel indestructible. i'd treat the 1000 miles likely the same way i'd treat a pair of alden indys. carefully.

did you stop following the other thread you started? http://www.alden-of-carmel.com/index...p_Boot_217.htm Quote: Originally Posted by sinnedk Hi, Does anyone have pics of the AF95?

Only thing I would prefer on these would be a natural sole-edge, but the black will wear away with time. +1 natural edges would make them even better, but as you said they wear down over time and remember alden can do them with a natural edge when you send them in to be resoled.
