That looks absolutely fantastic.

Anyone buy the waterproof version? How waterproof is the standard version?

Would these work with slim jeans like KMW 1980s?

They look totally different when they're treated. Personally, I certainly think they look better when they're treated, however, the rugged look also isn't bad IMO. I'm planning on picking up a pair when I head down to DC in a few weeks from the retail store. I'll treat them as soon as I get them because I'm looking for a relatively "dressier" boot, unlike my current selection, which really don't fit the bill.

Standard version should be fine. I stood in the rain for three hours at a football game the other day and was fine.

You're not talking about the Tyson's Corner LL Bean, are you? Because they don't carry these boots there.

What did you treat these with?

I really like the look of these boots, I tried to find them at Tysons corner in DC, but sadly they don't have them in stock.

*EDIT* What kidtwist91 said... I see the Obenauf's cream, but did you do anything else? Did you need a lot of coats to be able to get that dark a color?

Well, I finally caught up with this thread and I guess I stand corrected.

Besides, the last couple pics are making me rethink the Katahdins.

The product is in the picture. Obenauf's Heavy Duty LP.

+1 Not even sure why you'd want to buy a waterproof version, when you can just apply Obenauf's and waterproof them. Besides, prior to the treatment i've been in several rain storms and they fared just fine.

I only used one coat. As per a recommendation by rapefruit, I plan on applying a second coat tonight.

Glad the picture was able to assuage your resistance towards the boots. I admit the first fit picture was murdered by flash and poorly lit room, but untreated, i still really like the boots.

I'm planning on applying Obenauf's Heavy Duty LP to a pair of Katahdin engineering boots. Do I need to also apply Sno-Seal to waterproof them or will just Obenauf's suffice?

They're pretty much the same thing.
