The same boots are on their way to me. Where did you get yours from? I'm planning on doing nothing to them besides maybe an occasionally application of conditioner. They are distressed after all. Got mine from creaturesofcomfort.us. Yeah i think i'm not going to treat them at all. I don't plan on wearing them in crazy snow/mud conditions - i have other more suitable rubber soled boots for that kind of weather. Let me know how they fit. I wear a 10C in Allen Edmonds and a 10 in pretty much everything else and was thinking about getting a 43 in the CPs but can't find a 43 on sale anywhere http://www.aloharag.com/highseas/pro...GPIBNHMHJJFLIP There's a size 43 for you. Only 1 left too. I got mine in a size 44. 43, while probably closer to being the right length for me are slightly too narrow. CPs tend to run narrower than most in general so i had to size up 1 for a more comfortable fit.
