You know it took a while for this particular boot to grow on me, for precisely the reasons you've highlighted here. The combination of ridgeway, storm welt, and double/thick midsole makes for a robust boot. Not exactly what I'd visualized when I signed up for the GMTO. I even listed this pair on BST because I wasn't a fan of the finished product. But after finally wearing them almost a year after I received the boots, I've grown very fond of this pair. If I could redo the makeup I would choose flat welt. Otherwise I really like the boots and they're very distinctive within my boot collection.

Personally, I don't find EB boots to be chunky in general but my three pairs are all on 74945 which is a fairly refined last. I have a color 4 Balway on dainite with storm welt and a color 4 NST boot on double leather soles with flat welt, and both pairs are quite elegant to my eyes.

By the way, what kind of soles do you prefer on your boots?
I suppose I’m an outlier, but always double leather if given the choice. Only exception being my shearling boots, commando or mini-lugs for those.
