Very nice. I'm contemplating a similar setup myself. Thanks for posting!

I highly recommend sending in your measurements through Kyle at Bakers. It's kind of a pain to deal with the measurements, but great to get your size dialed in with all the years of experience they have. Wish I would have done this a couple of years earlier.

Interesting how much they darkened. I do recall this post. Maybe the OP should start off with Obenauf's oil to break them in and only use LP as a nuclear option!

The darkening effect will depend on how much you use over a period of time. I posted pictures of these rebuilds I had done a few months ago. The uppers and the new lowers are both brown oil. Brown can end up looking almost black, depending.

Striking color difference between the new and old/LP'd brown oil tan on chicken's boots. I'd personally prefer mine didn't darken so much, which is why I was curious about whether I could expect similar break-in experience as with my.current distressed smooth. With these, I've managed to keep them from turning a dark brown so far.
I have a preference for lighter colors with the expectation that they won't be as hot as a darker pair in my sunny and hot environment.
Thanks for the comments. I'll probably take a chance at a makeup on brown oil tan and see how long I can keep them with their beautiful original color

I would look into Red Dog Smooth. It doesn't darken up as much, and it really is a nice medium brownish red(more brown than red). I think it is a much overlooked color. BTW, the false tongue on the right is Brown oil, so it is a good comparison. For that matter, the false tongue on the left is new Red Dog, while the toe Red Dog has been Obenauf'd quite a bit. As you can see, not a lot of change.

Bounty Hunter in Brown Oil Tan. Probably will do mini vibram sole though. I want a work boot.

I agree with you on sending in the tracings and getting the size right. Bought some Brown Dress SDs last year and Kyle at Baker's got the sizing perfect. I love my boots.

Nice. The Vibram 430 is a good versatile option.
