    Wow, that doesn't look good. Great to know for future reference.

    Man... that left toe looks just like the top of the "leather"-wrapped steering wheel on my Hyundai after nine sunny years and no garage. My wife recently returned some Frye boots due to calf fit issues; I'm glad she didn't keep them long enough for that to develop.

    I'm sorry to see it happened to yours. Thank you for sharing the photos.

    How does a 10E treat you?

    I know right! I noticed something peeling off the tongue of the boot after the fist lace up out of the box. Then I nicked the toe a few days later and noticed some discoloration and more peeling. It is a shame because the boots are really comfortable. I did have a good experience with the Frye Arkansas boot a few years ago.

    I believe a 10E would be too roomy on the toes, as a 9.5E/EEE are already about 1/2" longer for my feet. Just like pbmonk advised, I'll just try a different last. I'm planning on trying on Jos A Bank's AE Boardroom, which are PAs on the 7 last.

    Anyone knows what the deal is with the Mojave chukkas?

    They were introduced a few months ago, and are apparently now on clearance ($177). Surprisingly short time for a non-webgem model.

    Might be a boot thing - Shaker Heights and others are now clearance too.

    They're probably clearing their fall and winter stock, which was boot-heavy.

    Looking forward to seeing the spring collection...

    What kind of polish did you use?

    Those are very festive! You need the "candy cane laces" for those though. A guy on an airplane on Tuesday night was wearing Strands with the candy cane laces. I was sporting my Alden penny's on the plane after a day with my Cappuccino Jeffersons. -Mike Edit: Lace reference: http://m.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF936_1_40000000001_-1

    I have found that an application of Venetian Creme followed by some brushing helps even out the color on any of my shell shoes.
