BTW, @BBlue's Icy Mocha boots above remind me that somewhere it was announced that they are going to restock that leather.  Which means, perhaps, a chance at these beauties for the next MTO..?  The old 1940 service boot pattern, toecap, half sole, lowered heel:

 

 

Though I know this is jumping the gun; just wanted to plant a seed...

You mean on Bretts instagram feed? Saw he posted the icy mocha being stitched up as well as a complete "chromepak bb10 with beeswax" service boot. Anybody know anything about that new chromepak?

That's right, it was on Instagram...  Yeah, the "beeswax" leather looked interesting too didn't it?

Yup! The guys over on GYW (reddit) were saying how Nicks made something in a BB10 which had a greenish tint...but the beeswax on the 'bergs has mellowed that out without darkening...

Definitely looks like an interesting leather either way, trying to track down a pic of the Nicks that were mentioned for comparison

Maybe these would be close.

What does one have to do to get their waxed boots to look like the pair above.

The obvious answer is to wear them but I can't see any change except sole/heel wear with regular wear. Does merely the air, in time, cause such a patina?

Friction. Those boots above likely saw hard use from some sort of outdoor endeavour.

actually the wax will break down from things like flexing around the ankle. Also jeans will rub off the wax (onto your jeans...). I have about 75 wears of mine and they look about half that worn in. But if I actually wore them to do manual labor besides jockeying a desk they'd probably look like that in about a month. The wax comes off pretty easily via friction etc.

The SF waxed flesh service boots on the 2045 are really, really nice -- once they broke in. I don't know much about boot construction nor do I want to, but I assume they have a steel shank. And the leather is ridiculously thick. I get compliments all the time. A classic boot IMO.

That is so true (and sad) for so many of us.

Did you happen to take any pics of this wrinkling? Curious how that leather breaks in / ages.

No doubt, my Boondockers see my car and then the pavement from the parking lot into work. Maybe the mall on the weekend. It's going to be a very long time before patina becomes a part of their existence.

Coincidentally, wearing mine today amid thunderstorms here.
