One month in of wearing my Natty CXL Indy's (on the Modified Last) as daily wears. No rotation with these, I've been wearing them 6-7 days a week. So far the weather/exposure hasn't been all that bad. Some rain, some mud and sand, a few light hikes. They've gotten Lexoled a couple of times, and heavily LP'd early on. Didn't mess with the color much at all, other than making the natural welt a bit darker. I plan on wearing these every day this winter, except possibly for snow that's heavy enough to make me wear my beans.
Fit wise, they've stretched a bit more than I'd have wished, mostly in the eyestays. They haven't stretched much, if at all, in the actual foot area. Light heel slippage, but I think it's mostly because the rear of the shoe needs to break in just a little bit more to flex with my heel.
I'm looking forward to seeing what they look like after a full season of exclusive wear, and posting them here (next to everyone's neat and shiny shoes).
they might look good after a full season of exclusive wear but they aint going to smell good.....
