Couple more pics of my new PH IIs: Comparison with RM chukka: They fit much better after several weeks of wear.
Yeah, they just don't make'm like that anymore. Literally!
Here's a side by side of a Barrie (left) and the Wolvernine Model 744 (right):Judge for yourself which one you think looks better.The 744 is 11D and the Barrie is a 10D.The 744 feels narrower in the heel area than the Barrie, and has a roomier toebox. I personally find the 744's relatively narrower heel/wider toe box combo very comfortable. In order for me to get a proper fit in Barrie, primarily in the heel and arch areas, I've had to move to 10.5C, which appears...
Nice combo tifosi! Love that tie. I am still breaking in my Tankers - haven't left the house but they are raring to go.
Just picked these up from Context: Joe's PH II in Horween Peanut Chamois Handsewn toe True Moccasin construction Plantation crepe sole It's my third pair of Russell Moccasins and I definitely like the look of these PH II's. Kudos to Context for offering this make up. You can find tons of unique RM styles on Japanese websites and blogs, but relatively few in the U.S. As for the fit -- you know how some boots fit stiff and firm, like you have heavy Frankenstein...
I'd love another pair of waxed flesh shoes -- or boots.I know many people like the distressed look but whenever my Maliseets start getting those light, dry patches, I pull out the SR and the leather goes back to a more uniform, healthy, look again.
A little more info on Waxed Flesh from the Horween site: http://horween.com/101/the-leather-that-has-3-names/ I have a waxed flesh Quoddy Maliseet Oxford - great shoe. Love the leather. I apply a little saphir renovateur from time to time which keeps the waxed flesh conditioned.
Szerwo, nice pick up. I've been thinking about this makeup for quite a while now. How is that leather sole treating you? Is it comfortable to walk in? Is there a break in process or was it comfortable out of the box?
Nixda - those look fantastic. Congrats. Great to hear they are comfortable. Is that suede or rough out CXL? Curious about the dark spots - what caused them? They look fine -- and convey a broken in look to the boot -- but have you ever tried/ had any success cleaning those off? I have Quoddy and Yuketen suede shoes that are 4-5 years old, get tons of wear but haven't developed dark spots that I've seen in several Viberg boot pics.
A+++++I pre-ordered these too, and for the first time got a C width. I'm finding that the narrower toe box, flat welt and toe stitching make the Barrie Tanker look SO different from say, a D width Barrie LWB.
