    Anyone know if there is a discount code like the 20% off like last month?

    Should you apply obenauf's and then sno seal? Or just one or the other?

    I wore my boots today with jeans with a 7.25" opening....probably won't do it again, it just looks strange with that small of an opening. My '47's with an 8" opening look much better, IMO.

    Noob question here but can anyone confirm whether or not ordering the EE width will look weird on someone who is normally D? They're all out of the latter and I'm wondering if since it's a work boot type look it might not matter...I wear size 11. Thanks!

    Not a very good picture, but whatevs. If anyone is interested I can try to get a better one sometime. This is after two coats of Obenauf's and one coat of Kiwi black.

    Thanks for the pic. I like it. I've experimented with black polish on brown shoes to try and get a bit of an antiqued look. It never worked well. Perhaps with the more porous nature of work boot leather, it absorbs the black more. It seems to have at least.

    Thanks for the attempt. Feel free to post more images. I'd love to see how they turn out in the future.

    Agreed. Looking good, Jekyll. I'd like to see how that wears with time.

    I've had these boots for a good month or so now, and it appears that the stitching at the bottom of the lacing is starting to come loose. It's just the ends that are coming out one or two stitches but it is kind of bothering me. Is this something I need to be worried about, or is this something you guys are getting too? Btw jekyll those look great!

    Just picked up a pair last week. Great quality / looks as expected. Collar starting to break in.

    Added a pair of quality Sofsole insoles to my Engineers, replacing the cheap, thin one they came with. So much better, but hate having to spend the extra $25

    I think its more of a question of comfort. If your foot is sliding side to side thats not good. I have the 12 EE and they measure a touch under 5" under the soles at their widest. This is perfect for me. They are definately a bit wide but not extremely so. If your foot is slightly on the wide side they should be fine. Def not for a narrow foot though.

    Definitely interested in some more pics. My Obenauf's for the first treatment should be here early this week and I'm thinking about emulating you.

    I wear these boots often in the snow. I wear them only for shit weather in fall and winter.

    The Obenauf's wears off and they go back to looking unconditioned. I would not sweat the question of Obenauf's or not. Do it or don't do it. I like the water resistance because of this way that I wear them.
