I like the way they turn out:



BTW, the chromexel leather scuffs easily. ffffuuuu.gif

Did a search for tan care and found this. What should i be treating my boots/soles with prior to wearing? I have seen a lot for the brown, black and N8 but not much on the tan.

Thanks!

Finally got mine in today from STP. Took them an extra day or two to e-mail me and verify my shipping/billing address (still not sure how that is supposed to prevent fraud unless I'm stupid enough to steal somebody's credit card and then order something using their contact e-mail but I didn't press the issue with customer service).

 

The brown is more amber than I anticipated, I'll probably end up wearing it with blue jeans instead of khaki chinos as originally planned. I am absolutely a 12EE in Red Wings IRs - no doubt about that - and so was pleasantly surprised that the 1k 12D's are only slightly snug in the middle. I'd say they run a bit wide.

 

They're beautiful boots and I couldn't say for sure why mine were 2nds. I guess there is the slightest bit of mismatch of the cut on the top sole where the stitching stops at the heel but it's all I can even think might be wrong with them. Wouldn't have noticed even if I had been buying them in a store.

 

Big ups to the fella who posted the sale alert.

Just did a refresher of Obenauf's LP (2 coats) after 1 year of not-rough but not-babied wear. They look good as new! Two coats of Obenaufs makes it so dark though. My boots are now a rich brown colour, from their previous 'Rust'.

any pics? Would be nice to see how the rust colour evolved.

Anyone have a suggestion for darkening the white/beige welt stitching? I'd rather it be more brown/rust, like the rust color of the boots.

Yeah, wear them in the mud a few times.

There's no mud here, only streets paved with gold and food trucks. Can you advise?

Yes, go for a ride out to the country. You should have no trouble finding mud after it rains. If it's dry just pour some of your Perrier on the dry dusty stuff you'll find all over the place and then do a happy dance where you poured the water. If that doesn't work stand on your head and spit nickels while singing a Navajo rain incantation. If that doesn't work you could always just smear some brown wax into the threads and brush it out a bit once dry.

Got my STP 1k seconds today. Happy overall, sizing down .5 from my indies was the way to go.

A bit worried about this gouge that it might be deep enough to cause a weakness in the leather that would lead to a rip or hole through the upper with enough wear?


Side by side with the 405s.

Looks pretty shallow to me. Throw some lp on that thing.

Sadly going to return my pair from STP. Only sized down 0.5 because I have wide feet. Width is fine but my ankle slips frown.gif I really like these boots too

post #3494 of 6890

The heel slippage will go away as the boot breaks in. In any case, sizing down 1/2 is more than sufficient, especially with a wide feet. I measure a size 11E and a size 10.5D works. I if most people wear boots the way it is intended to be worn, there is no need to size down more than 1/2.

I received my size 9D brown seconds from Sierra Trading Post the other day and they are too tight so I will be needing to go up a full size. If anybody wants to trade their brown/rust 10D for my brown 9D send me a PM.
