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?
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!
