jawnzer---Welcome, your boot selection sound great. I’d love to see what a soft toe Bounty Hunter in Navy/black rough-out would look like; Sounds very nice. The navy CXL is wonderful stuff.

Yeah, that navy is absolutely stunning, especially one of the pairs that was posted quite early in this thread (around page 40) That pretty much sold me on it.
Just need to get something for the tough winters around here, something with a good sole, but something that doesn't look to bulky, and vibram 430 looks to be perfect for it.
Question I have, why does certain leather need to have a lining, but others don't?
Those look awesome, love that navy! Makes my choice even easier.
Those look great. How long have you had them ? My natural CXL still has that toupe color, they still haven't gotten that brownish patina. It's only been a few weeks though.
Just got my boots today. Only problem is that they got me nylon laces and hooks instead of leather and eyelets.
Overall the boots are great! They felt comfortable right out of the box and I will break them in around the house first.
@cwmi I've had them since late April but have only worn about once/week over the summer, hoping to get a lot more wear this winter. I've brushed them a couple times and that seems to have darkened them a little so maybe try brushing. Not sure of your experience but this is the dryest/least greasy cxl of the three pairs I have (1000 mile & Indy), are yours pretty oily?
Yes , they do seem oily compared to my wife's 1000 mile (brown CXL) not quite as much. This is my first pair of CXL footwear and I was pretty surprised on how easily they scuff. I've tried brushing them and I end up making them worse looking, I will usually just wipe them with a damp cloth then rub or knead them and the scuffs come right out.
I think part of the fun is building up the boot. I get to help out my wife, she has gotten bit by the boot bug. First her 1000 miles and now she wants a pair of White's. She is looking to build up a pair of lace up cowboy Packers either 14" or 16" with pointed toes in either brown oil or distressed brown.
Looking forward to see how these turn out.
