No wear on the new boots @George Red ? Is it warm over yonder (hence newer treads..)?
Planning on giving mine a run out tomorrow, see how the victory wears all day.

MTO from the sale finally came in. I’m torn. I requested natural shell and a few other details I guess couldn’t translate well or be done. Also 3/4 sides have what I can only describe as the “loose grain“ of shell if there ever is one. Or I got a roided-out butt hide?

I had similar on both instances of my unlined chukkas. I'd never seen that on shell until this pattern. Maybe a function of the larger section of unlined shell that can't be stretched as tight?

First. That’s quite the departure from your natural shell request. Second I’ve never seen that kind of scarring/marred finish on horween cordovan.

seriously WTF!?!?

Did you keep? Does it get worst with wear or stay the same?

It doesn't get worse. It does temporarily smooth out of you stretch that area tight by hand, which makes me think it may not have been stretched as tight.
