Great boots! How did you size them on the 2045?

I'm just having a punt as I own a pair (which I just posted) they are only just starting to show the evolution signs of the ones posted. Brown wax flesh is heavy waxed on the flesh side that comes up looking like the smooth side until it's starts to wear. I guess if you had a pair of Boondockers (rough out boots) and heavy waxed them this is the result you would get.

Also they look very similar to the pair Brett Viberg posted on his Instagram, and they were almost identical. Commando sole, brown wax flesh.

Hope that clears it up.

That makes a lot more sense. Thanks for the clarification.

To be totally honest I got lucky on my first pair. But not to honest as I still had to size down .5 a size. The fit was soo good!! I also had a pair of Boondockers in 110 and they were a tad sloppy in comparison.

I'm currently out busking, breakdancing in the street corner with my cardboard box and getto blaster to raise the flow for another Viberg drop. Shits gooood!!

Great boots. What do you use to treat brown wax flesh?

Are these that last round of Horsehide?  Beauties...

 

And on a tangent, what river is that in your other pic?

That's a service boot pattern, I'm pretty sure. Sounds like a great makeup either way.

A little more info on Waxed Flesh from the Horween site: http://horween.com/101/the-leather-that-has-3-names/

I have a waxed flesh Quoddy Maliseet Oxford - great shoe. Love the leather. I apply a little saphir renovateur from time to time which keeps the waxed flesh conditioned.

^^Are those 'pre-distressed' or is that just a well-worn example?

I have those Maine guides in waxed flesh and love it. Very hearty leather that needs very little care. I only get concerned when it gets a little dry and conditioner helps that. Would love a boondocker in this makeup. Much prefer waxed flesh than the CXL or roughout offerings for this boot. If Viberg were still taking custom orders I would have placed it already!

Looks like those are a well worn boot but waxed flesh definitely distresses very nicely and without much effort.

They are just well-worn. Here's some more info about that exact pair: http://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=823.msg317036#msg317036

If I can get a commitment from 4 people for this makeup (I think that maybe the 2045 last might have more structure, so you can debate that), I'd be happy to ask Guy if we could do this boot. Stuff like this is essentially what we built the Styleforummarket to do.  Of course, you guys should note that this is what the boots look like after they've been worn, not what they would look like on day 1.

 

You guys also interested in a derby shoe?  I don't know the exact release dates for that, but if you will propose some makeups (I would like a grey/brown leather, which I feel would really be popular, and also play to the strengths of that model), I'd be happy to entertain ideas for that as well.

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

I'd love another pair of waxed flesh shoes -- or boots.
I know many people like the distressed look but whenever my Maliseets start getting those light, dry patches, I pull out the SR and the leather goes back to a more uniform, healthy, look again.
