They used those thin tounges on the wings and horns edition. It is for comfort.

As for half the shit he posted, is typical of any work boot.

I finally got my boots this week. I'm OK with the quality, just not the 5 month wait. Size-wise I could have gone down another half a size, but they may have been too narrow, and a thick insole should be fine.

I did note that the inside of the cardboard box had black nubuck dye all over it from the journey to my place. Does this dye rub off on the inside of jeans or pants. How do you avoid this with the nubuck boots - you can't buff them to remove dye, can you?

Also, do you guys treat your nubuck boots with a protector spray to waterproof them?

Think a protector should help. Don't know of any really good protectors for nubuck. Not sure about the dye rubbing off on the leather. When mine came, there was no black spots on the box

So when you tie the boot up, it fits tight around the ankles and calf.

How did most of you guys size your Dayton service boots? I've seen some people go down 1.5 sizes from their Brannock size, and some people only go down one size. Any thoughts?
post #1363 of 1912
size down at least one
post #1364 of 1912
size down 1.5 + add a letter or 2 for width worked perfect for me.

8 D -> 6.5EE

Thanks, guys. I'm a 9.5D on the Brannock sale, 42 CP, 9 on the Barrie last, and I picked up a BNIB size 8 in the charcoal nubuck off of B&S. I'm not overly concerned about them fitting well, as I used to own a pair of the W+H Dayton Boots in a size 8, and they fit pretty well, albeit a tiny bit tight. Hope that there aren't any quality issues! shog[1].gif
