    Am I the only one whose leather laces smell like they are rotten? I thought my boots were rotting after only a couple weeks until I realized that the laces smelled awful so I swapped them for some nylon boot laces and they smell like leather boots again.

    Also to reiterate some of the sizing, I wear 8D in Trubalance last (Indy boot) and 8.5C in SD and they pretty much fit identically.

    Ok next boot to build, in a boondocker style:

    6" Bounty Hunter or Semi Dress
    Distressed Roughout
    Contrasting smooth leather tongue (maybe British Tan?)
    All antique eyelets
    Single midsole, natural
    700 Vibram outsoles
    1/4" lowered block heel
    No celastic toe reinforcement, aka "soft toe"

    What you guys think?

    This the exact build I was going to do for a bounty hunter boondocker but with different outsole. I also was contemplating their sand suede as a swap

    Kindred spirits :) And any idea of the thickness of the sand suede compared to the roughout? Ideally they'd offer CXL natural roughout, like viberg, but I think it's hard stuff to come by

    Natural CXL roughout is no harder to come by then regular smooth natural CXL. It's just the other side of the leather.

    Distressed Roughout sounds perfect and very rugged. Just what I need...
    They should look something like this.

    Dope, I'm thinking about doing something similar with a pair of Nicks.

    EDIT: just saw the option of "desert storm" (or "desert sand") roughout; this is probably it for me!

    Those are nice. This pair of Nicks has been slaying me the last month or so. I love the sole on these.

    is this the distressed roughout? It looks lighter and orange-y in color compare to the previous pics. Basically the color I want. Reminds me of Alden`s snuff suede color

    The site I pulled it from says its standard roughout. But honestly I don't know. It does appear to be a shade different than the distressed roughout, though. Like you said; similar to Alden's snuff suede. Or what yuketen and OSB call peanut suede

    That would make sense. Like dried wheat near harvest time :)

    Stretching width-wise can actually occur, whereas stretching the length is an exercise in futility. How "too narrow" are they? Also, what leather? CXL would be much more likely to stretch easily.

    B-Ewing,

    Would say they are Harvest RO, another build being put together already? Impressed!

    Moja: If they are bareable for a while whilst they break in they will stretch in width, just look at some worn boot pics and you'll see the width difference from new, thick socks and get them wet!
