I'm going to let these 10d natural cxl bounty hunters go that I got from @ExtraitdeMinimalist. I decided if I'm going to have a small purposeful collection I can't exactly have 3/5 pairs be natural. They're in great condition, EdM wore them for a month and then I wore them just 5 times or so, the only real damage is the scuff on the left toe. These are a 10d on the 55 last, 6", commando half sole, single celastic toe. I'll get more pics up soon, just thought I'd offer them for cheaper here before I throw them on Grailed/eBay.
I'm asking what I paid, $300, and I'll eat the fees/shipping costs within the CONUS.
Those things are like the town bicycle of this forum. I propose we should all wear this pair at least once.

When new....
Your pic has convinced me I need a pair of murdered out black semi dress either in black elk or black dress with leather soles + topy for a boot that can be dressed up. Question - your black elks look like they do not have a brown tea core (I want black all the way through), is that the case? If the black elk comes as a tea core leather only, I will go for black dress but hesitant bc I'm not sure if this leather is too "plain" and lacking character as it ages, I don't want to get bored of it.

I'm also going to ask Baker to make the boots with 7 eyes instead of 6, has anybody else done this? I am going for this exact boot below only with a double leather sole + topy (I can't tell if it's the C461 last or the C55).

I pretty much ordered something similar in brown dress with all black eyes and double leather soles except with a toe cap. I requested 8 eyes and Kyle said it shouldn’t be a problem, so hopefully Whites will follow through.

Here is brown dress vs black elk tan. The black is dark charcoal inside so pretty similar to black oil tan that way. Full disclosure, the box said black dress as the color but I ordered black elk tan, it is a bit heftier than the brown dress.

Man I love that contrast stitching on the upper... every time I see it, I think anew how awesome it is...

Excited to see how these turn out. Totally forgot about them and after I plugged in my order, I was messing around on their site and stumbled across them. Had instant pangs of regret for not ordering them.

In other news, I couldn't make up my mind on the MP vs 5050 last and you gents declined to nudge me in either direction. I left it in Bakers hand and they confirmed they are ordering me a 5050. Super stoked to find out what those will be like.

please share when your pair arrives :)

I placed an order too, but without caps. I put way more thought into brass vs. antique hardware than any one person should...

Long live plain veg tan

I will so post...

Mine will be on the 38 Swing, which will give an interesting aesthetic, but I am to the point where comfort trumps all... and my love for the 38 Swing is well known...

no shame in that. When comfort trumps all, you land here...
