    I'm really happy with it. It has a little bit of a red tone that I didn't quite notice in pictures. I like that extra bit of warmth that adds. And I love the grain. Bison is kind of a weird leather, but that grain makes it one of my favorites.

    Thanks! Yeah, I don't have any worries on the tapered jeans. Maybe if I was quite a few years younger. :) Andy B.

    Revrend,
    Those boots are incredible. They are built up with a double mid sole and commando mini lug half?


    So the wife is going to go with distressed smooth (for today) on her build up. It was down to that , brown oil tan, or brown horse hide. Does anyone have some pics of those with some age on them? I know there was some pics in this thread but from what i can remember they were all pretty new.

    Cwmi, they are actually a single midsole and commando mini lug outsole.

    Andy, I flirted with the idea of asking for them to be made without the logo for a second, but I love the way it came out on this leather. It looks a little different on each boot.

    All these boots are beautiful!

    I would say yes and yes..with the proper care. Looks like a great build but I would suggest a double mid sole especially if your going to be on your feet all day.

    I'd think most construction workers would go for the full lug sole.
