How's the quality of yours? I read the reviews on LL Bean and there are some complaints about the stitching coming out of the toe caps, or the heel separating from the sole, etc. Apparently the older Katahdins were better made. Also, are they treating these with oil before shipping them out, as jacquedelaneu above pointed out?

I don't think I would've been able to size down comfortably. I'll be wearing these constantly and will post pictures as they break in. Also, I would highly recommend these to anybody considering them, can't beat the quality for $160 and they look much better in person, especially after the Obenauf's treatment. I would definitely purchase these again. -226
