The big difference between Mitch and myself is my style tends to be more photo journalistic while Mitch is an incredible fine art photographer. The following pic is one I took last year. The light was less than ideal but the drama of the scene is certainly there.

Since I do have a pair of Cap-toe Trench boots in natural CXL I decided to take a few pics under diffused natural daylight.

Has the toe box been modified at all? Those look much less bulbous/rounded in the toe than other pairs I have seen

That's something I really can't answer. These are stock boots from the latest run that George did. What I can tell you is shot angles can make things look weird along with something called barrel distortion. Those are two things I take into account and avoid when trying to setup a product type shot.

Crane's you planning on putting any toppers on your boots?  Still contemplating whether I want them if we ever get out natty shell boots haha

These are the boots George sent to me to check my size. We're now an official Oak Street Bootmakers dealer so technically they are inventory. Now with that said I'm having a hard time keeping from taking them home. If I did I would not add a half sole to them. I would wear them in the studio and around town more than out in the field. I know it's hard to believe that I would be so kind and gentle right? LOL! My custom super duty HDs are specifically intended for the rough and nasty stuff.

Interesting little topic here.  I have a pair of the cap toe Trenches, and am picking them up from a local cobbler at noon today, after having Topy's put on.  I absolutely love the boots, and while I'm a 'fair-weather, pavement' sort of guy, I am always conscious of avoiding sloppy ground, don't wear them when roads have been salted etc.  But I did notice recently a little shard of glass stuck in one of the leather soles.  That was it, time to Topy!  I will let you know how they turn out.  

 

I'll also comment on the 'bulbiness' of the cap toes.  I too notice that my 'little' size 11.5's look a bit like wide duck feet when I look down.  They have to be the widest shoes/boots I have, but that also makes them like putting on a pair of slippers.  So I can live with the wide look.

The cap toe really does wonders to the toe. Unless, of course, you think they look less bulbous even by cap toe Trench boot standards.

I agree, they have a wide look when looking down on them, but I do not find the toe to be bulbous. Love these boots.

I find that the captoe really changes the proportions of the Trench Boot.
