    Wax laces are cotton laces just with wax applied. They soften up after a wear or two.

    @chrisefi That is a superb collection of boots. You have all 4 of the boots still on my rare shell "TO GET" list, the Cigar and Ravello WTB, Cigar Indy and Ravello CT.

    Mighty jealous!!

    thanks for the kind words gentlemen.
    awesome. i really like that boot. i would buy it if i didn't already have something very similar.
    fantastic. now you have to post more often.
    great buy. i can't imagine walking into a store and buying whiskey aldens they happened to have there in my size. this is like a yeti sighting.
    really nice casual fit dubs.
    Wow! that offensive line is all going to the hall of fame.
    the nst boots are unbelievable.

    A great looking collection Chris! Good balance of boots but you need more shoes. :) Fit is key and selling non fitting is the right thing no matter how hard they were to get...
    Good collection my friend, you need more black and Color 8! :)
    Your Ravello Chukkas are looking superb. I need to get mine out. -Mike
