Cleaning these up has been alot of work.
The I cleaned up the toe so well the nasty creases are now smooth again.
Not sure if I'm going to oil them and or LP them next.

Look good, I'd just do a coat or 2 of LP, let it dry in the sun, and then hit them with a brush for about 1/2 hour.

4characters, your sizing for your incoming SD's should be spot in, the SJ's are roomier overall throughout the foot and that half size should be just what you need.

Cheers dears.

The 461C last is supposed to be like the standard SJ last only with a more upturned toe. Going by my boots in front of me, I would say the SJ last is roomier. What all that means is that yes, I think your 10.5D SDs should fit fine.

I don't know how much insoles adjust the fit, other than the heel area. I can say with 100% certainty that you can make much more adjustments by varying your sock thickness. Also, something to keep in mind is that wool socks (at least 75% wool) are excellent at wicking away moisture, so don't assume wool=hot sweaty feet. I said I don't wear my SJs in the summer. That isn't because they make my feet sweat, it's because they look kind of goofy with board shorts and Hawaiian shirts. biggrin.gif

Thanks again Andy B., very helpfull info! :D

Love the visual of SJs, bored shorts, and Hawaiian shirts… whoever could pull that one off could rule the world.

Brian, I'd do one thin coat of Obenauf's and a lot of brushing. Obenauf's is easy to overuse. 2 coats is never necessary unless the boots in question have been in a barn for decades, or you're after waterproofing. For basic maint/conditioning, easy does it with that stuff.

Does anyone have any tips on tucking the tounge properly when lacing? The leather is stiff new and this is my first boot this tall that uses laces.

Thanks,
Brian

This is how I did it.

A better shot.

Thanks,

I did that last night and have had issues all day with the false tongue sliding down.

And OH MY are these awesome boots!

Super comfy yet still very stiff in the ankles.

So glad I went with the double midsole also, very happy with how they walk.

Brian,

I don't know how Egli is getting his false tongues to lay like that with the lacing he is using. I would think it would be difficult to do, as you are finding out, until everything is well-broken in. I just have mine laced in like normal (without the loop over the crossed laces), and they still were sliding down. What I did was cut two more small slits in the false tongue about 5 pairs of eyelets up and run the laces through the slit. That at least prevents the false tongue from sliding down.

Tighten up the laces and everything will break in and stay in place.
