Red Wing 8180:
Guys, anybody purchase the green, Kangatan 8180? I got a pair several months ago and am still formulating my opinion on them. Basically it's the same fit as an 875 so no complaints there. I'll post a few pics in the near future.

That's awesome! I am on my 4th or 5th(?) pair and counting, including a pair of casual chukkas. The sheer range of options can be a bit overwhelming when you shop their site. But it's well worth it. Good luck on your new pairs!
Guys - this thread needs more photos. Here's my Russell Mocs after a nice rainy, muddy hike with my dog:
