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...
My MTO Bourbon/Brown Broadstreets arrived today.
Only 4 months but finally figure out how to spit shine
Those are very sweet DHD28! You should be very proud of them. Wear them in above average health
What kind of polish did you use?
Great looking MTO, well done!
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.
