Here are a few quick pics of my tankers as they look tonight. The scratches on the leather part of the sole are from my hopping on a friends bike the other day with some sharp pedals. I treated them with Alden black boot cream at first, but that made for a really shiny finish. I've gone to Obenauf's which gives a nice soft finish, much more similar to how they come from Alden which I prefer.
And just because here is a pic with my Indy boots (1 month old), my Russell chukkas (1 year old) as well as some DBs and a pair of Katahdins in the background.
They are the first ones, the Engineer boots. Excellent boots for the money. The leather is really thick and soft and they are well put together. Probably the best value out there in a solid and nice looking boot.
