So......are we 100% sure that its corrected grain and not calfskin? Can someone aware me on how bad corrected grain is?
How is it allowed that they can false advertise like that if its true? :/ guess its less regulated there
I like the boots. The LWB are rubbing on the side of my feet. Right underneath the ball shaped bone on my leg that connects to my feet. I like to wear oxfords and loafers without socks, but now I need to consider on wearing socks until they break in.
The fit for the shoes are pretty much what is advertised on their site. If you talk to them, they'll help you with sizing questions, but they're just going to tell you what's on their site. The only fitting issue was that both pair's left shoe was a bit tight on the instep, but after walking around in them, I didn't notice any discomfort.
In my review I already stated that the shoes are CG. Just because they are CG, doesn't mean they're not calf skin. There are plenty of discussions and info on CG on the web, just do a google search and you'll find a lot of info on the subject.
They didn't falsely advertise. The leather is CG calf skin. They don't have to call it corrected grain. If you ask shoe companies about their leathers, they'll tell you which of their shoes are CG or not.
As I have said before, if you want the best leather available from them, get any shoe made from pull up leather. I think the rough leather they have will feel cheap.
When I have some spare time, I'll try to post a close up shot of the creasing on the shoes.
