Same pair - 6" Swing Last Distressed BH with toe caps, no celastic - after a thorough application of Obenauf's LP, a night near the heat register, and a good brushing. Trimmed the tongue protectors back, and put in the new leather laces.
Ordered on September 12th, my 6" Bounty Hunters finally arrived today. Size 12D Swing Last (per Kyle's recommendation based on my foot measurements, tracings, & experience in Red Wings, Chippewa, etc). Stats for the image database: Distressed Smooth leather, soft toe (no celastic) with plain toe cap, standard (Cuban) heel, Vibram 430 soles for work traction, standard trim for strength & repairability. Sole edge left raw by White's & sealed with clear edge treatment by...
Are these Brown Smooth? On a Semi-Dress last?
But are the pac boots available on a swing last? In my Great Lakes experience, those style winter boots always kept your feet warm, but were hell for walks of any length. I often spend all day on my feet outside carrying heavy crates, etc, then hop in an underheated truck, so I need both extreme warmth & walkability/arch/ankle support. And unfortunately if I were to order a pair of Hunters now it'd likely be February by the time I got them...
Yeah I'll be curious to hear how they perform this winter, @ahonobaka. The bitter cold, salt & slush of a Chicago winter can be very tough on footwear, so I was hesitant to go with the Hunters as there's not much out there review-wise. About to go for the nuclear option & get a pair of Muck arctic boots instead... fugly as hell but they should get the job done.
Alright! Baker's says boots are on the road. Estimated delivery next Tuesday; will post pics & specs for the design database that is this thread.
Just received an email from Kyle this evening; boots left factory on Friday, Baker's should have them dropped in the post by Thanksgiving
...and I'm still waiting on my Distressed Smooth BHs, ordered Sept 12th. Maybe they only have a few cobblers who handle swing last orders?
@cathpah the pic link is working. Are these the distressed BH you had Baker's apply a "light brown" or clear edge dressing to?
Yeah I'd also love to hear reviews from any Grizzly owners - looking to get a black CXL pair lined in sheepskin to get through this upcoming Chicago winter
