These look nice...would love to see a pic that really shows off how the sole looks on there. Wish I'd had the money to get in on this at the time.

I am drinkin my grape juice and its color is close to it. I have seen this sole on some alden model-don`t remember which one but for some reason I had forgotten the color and was expecting a white sole close to a christy white. It far exceeds my expectations biggrin.gif

Oh cant wait to receive mine!

These are great!  The look, feel, and color of the leather is phenomenal and the Vibram sole goes well with it.  Most importantly, they are supremely comfortable right out of the box (though they are a bit snug on me).  Thanks, George!

My vibram camp boots just got delivered! The color is awesome and the fit is spot-on. Went TTS because I plan on wearing thick socks with them when it gets colder. I would have taken the pic in natural light, but it looks like 10 pm outside with all the thunderstorms currently passing through the state.

Quick question for those of you with Oak Streets.  Are you all sizing down a half size from your Red Wing size, assume you've owned a pair of a Red Wings.  For example I'm a 10 in Red Wing Mocs, but I just can't fathom sizing down to a 9.5 in anything.

post #127 of 167
^ No, I sized down half from my normal shoe size.

I size down 1/2 size for Red Wings as well (from my normal shoe size).

I wear:

10.5D Allen Edmonds (my true size)
10D Red Wing
10D Alden
10D Whites
11D Nike (possibly New Balance as well)
10D Oak Street
10.5D Vans + Chucks + Jacks
10.5D LLBean blucher mocs
10D Clarks
10.5D Sperry

If you can think of another brand I may be able to chime in. It's finny to say I'm a true 10.5D when most of the shoes above I wear a 10D but it is 100% the case.

my right foot is slighter bigger than left, so its a bit snug in the toebox. curious if some time with shoe trees inserted may stretch it out a bit? thoughts?

so I have to admit - Tony and myself at Oak Street both went nuts over the way the camp boots turned out. I'm not shitting you, I think that is the best looking camp boot Oak Street has EVER made

Sage advice my friend. You're right 10.5 is your true size, but Red Wing, Oak Street, and some Alden lasts all run half a size big.
So BLAUGRANA, you should go with your Red Wing size

snug in the toe-box is good (as long as you mean in the width). The shoes will stretch to conform to the width of your foot especially in the toe box. A couple of days of wear and you will wonder how you ever thought they were snug =)
They really open right up after a few days of wear

I'll let you know after tomorrow, they're gonna get broken in well 

post #132 of 167
Ha the first day I wore it with white socks, the heel turned bloody red! biggrin.gif
Wore it with black socks today.

Those camp boots turned out amazing! I had forgotten you could get it in the config as well.

I went 1/2 size down as well. half down from your brannock size which in general consensus would be the same as rw/white`s/alden (tb/barrie/modified)/wolverine size.

haha - you've all been warned - Horween likes to make leather that bleeds like your raw denim does at the begining =)

This thread has got me juiced for the next model, whatever that may be.

No offense to all of you who have thus far provided photos, they look great! Thank you for taking the time to snap and post pics.

BUT, these shoes and boots deserve more! We need some high quality glamour shots of these beauties.
