    Soo I am still undecided about the katahdins vs. the Chippewa GQ boots. Thoughts? It's pretty much the toecap and color, I think..Also not sure if GQ is goodyear welted, since it doesn't say on Zappos...

    Toecap looks better hands down.Plus remember that the boots are guaranteed by LL Bean!

    As we speak, I'm applying Obenauf Lp but, does anyone know if I buy Obenauf oil, will it have an added effect, specifically making the boots softer? Or would it just be a waste of money?

    I just got a black pair of Addison 1000-mile. They are gorgeous. But I don't think I would dare wear them somewhere they could get scruffed up.

    Want to get the LL Beans' for heavy wear in the woods and dirt.

    I fit the wolverines perfectly with a 12D - what should I go for with the Katahdins?

    Yeah, UPS sucks balls but I didn't get charged anything besides the online pre-paid brokerage for my Beans.

    I received my Katahdins from UPS yesterday. When I picked up the box, it was so much lighter than what I was expecting that I thought maybe they actually forgot to put a boot in there! After putting them on though, these things are awesome. I may not put on anything else on my feet until summer rolls around. They are comfortable right out of the box which is a big plus over 75% of the work boots on the market!

    Trust me, your upper ankle area will hurt for a week or so.

    Luckily(?) I went through six-years of wearing various combat boots non-stop while in the Marine Corps and have a nice collection of thicker socks that are great for boots. My feet and ankles were destroyed years ago... I can take whatever these Katahdins can throw at me! [​IMG]

    It helps keep snow out.
