Thanks,

Good luck Mike. Hope it works out.

The green box of joy! Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



My new Whiskey PTBs!!!



Again, unfortunately when I took this picture I saw a scratch (HORROR) on the toe area of the left shoe.



Here is a close-up of the scratch. It does not look like something that I could just buff out as it looks like it is at the dye level.



My poor new scratched PTBs. :-(


So, what do you think I should do? The scratch is clearly in the highest visible place of the shoe.

Thanks!

Those are an awesome pair of shoes, they have been on my purchase list for a while. Sorry to hear about that scratch/defect and hope it all works out.

So what do you do? Is it detrimental to "stuff" them in there?

Boxes are usually too tight with shoe trees so I just use the dust bags and store them on shelves.

Thank you for the insight

There was a member who is selling a pair of 8.5 whiskey PTB's. Searched the forum and classifieds with no luck. If they're still available, please respond or send me a PM.

Their boxes are silly small. Don't know why. I don't store mine in their boxes.

I also don't get why they say "Custom Bootmaker" on them either.

Yep, I can finally start to see the light at the end of the tunnel on this one. I wrote to Will from LS and he said they expect the tan and dark brown sometime in the next 2 months.
