I agree with Kahuna75 - the white stitching is a lot of what drew me to the light brown Freiburg. I wasn't a huge fan of the Russet due to the dark sole, dark welt, and dark stitching. Just a personal preference for this type of boot.Chris
Mine are firsts. I don't mind some wrinkling around the ankles - I figure boots are going to do that no matter what. So I am good with these.
Just received my light brown Freiburgs today. This might be my favorite AE boot I have. The leather is kind of rough, but not sueded (except the toe is smooth). These are similar to my Cascades as far as leather goes. I don't know if I am going to put any AE Leather Lotion on these - it might really darken the leather given the rough surface. Fit wise I went with my usual AE size - 9.5D. These fit very nice having just tried them on and walked a very short distance. ...

I understand the point - and I really like that shoe in walnut.Chris
Yes, 201 has more room than 511 - especially in the instep.I went with the light brown. The russet looked a little too burgundy for me. And I wasn't a big fan of the black sole on the russet. I am thinking I will wear mine with khakis, jeans, cords, etc. I think the light brown will be more versatile for me.Chris
I wear 9.5D in all my AE's except the Odenwald (on the new B34 last). I tried on the Rogue which is on the 201 last. With the Rogue the 9.5D was slightly big and the 9D was OK with thin dress socks. I went with the 9.5D in the Freiburg as I figured I would probably be wearing thicker socks with these boots - more casual with jeans, etc.I have the Dundee 2.0 and went with the 9.5D as the 9D was a tad tight.Chris
I just ordered some Freiburg boots in light brown. I will post some photos and info when I get them. Chris
