I cant really tell its darker than the other pair on the last picture. I would be satisfied if mine get the same result as yours. Thanks again for sharing your experience.
I would rage hard (as hard as a middle aged person upset over shoes could) if that blotch were there upon first opening..
that being said, the 'repair' seems suitable, but I have to wonder how the shoe will react to years of use/sun/etc.. whether the blotch will rear its head as the #8 tends to fade into the accustomed shade that #8 grows into typically
I have that pair from them.
They should be opening very soon, probably early Jan 2014 as I received mailer from Jordan (Winn Perry) lately. Nice to see him back.
If you want to say with the Made in USA theme, THORLO makes a great boot sock. You can go as thin or as thick as you'd like.
They're made in Statesville, NC.
It looks like they're still running their Buy 3 - Get 1 free sale...which is their biggest sale of the year by far.
