Black Outland Leather Leeds MTO
Mismatched Sizes for my mismatched feet
This is my third MTO, but the first one to arrive with no issues at all. The leather seemed very dull/matte with a grey appearance out of the box. RW Boot Shoe Cream and AE Premium Polish have them looking more black with a little bit of gloss. I may add wax polish later but for now and until I see how they crease this is great. They are also now showing initial creases from 5 minutes around the house. The Outland Leather is very supple and wrinkles up easily in the creases but is supposed to be durable and long lasting.
I am going to try Over Under Lacing as that is "Ian's Favourite" and also use the Lock Lacing technique to try to keep my wide front, low volume instep, narrow heeled feet in place. I have Pedag 3/4 Viva Mini Inserts, Pedag Heel Grips and Tongue pads standing by for our first adventure together. Here's a picture of some sketchy stairs that I mentioned when asking for leather and sole advice. No need to be level front to back or side to side, really fun in the rain/snow/ice. I'm sure the Dainite will be just fine.
