    Apologies for being late back to the party, the soles on the Oxfords are not the best for wear. I have worn mine virtually none stop for almost a year, and the pics show the results, they are without a doubt the greatest shoes I have ever owned though.

    For the next two years I will be exclusively wearing my incoming Bounty Hunters for the HWBC, so my oxford are semi retired I guess.

    I am curious, what sort of brown leather do you all think it is on these boots in the link:

    http://www.7headlines.com/article/show/148016260

    (I am posting a link because the site won't let me save and repost the image.)

    Doesn't look quite like any of the browns I have seen from White's. A real basic, old fashioned brown.

    Yeah, looks like chromexcel, hard to tell of brown or natural though. Looks light for brown and dark for natural.

    Looks kind of like the Icy Mocha CXL that Viberg used.

    It does seem about the same color as the Viberg Ice Mocha CXL, but i don't think it's a Chromexcel leather. Notice how the back of the tongue and interior is the same color as the outside leather, whereas with CXL the back of the leather is always lighter. And seems to have a different texture. I kinda like it... it's very basic but classic to my mind.

    Yeah, I'm not sure--the wrinkles look like CXL sort of, but who knows.

    My pair of Farmer-Rancher.
    I bought it on ebay, therefore I don't know the specification.

    No half slip. Here's the specs from buildaboot, although I changed from the reduced heel to standard because the Vibram 430 doesn't extend back through the heel, so that makes the heel lower already in proportion to the front. I'll try to take a side pic tonight. I'm really glad I got these yesterday because today I went outside to 3 inches of slush on the ground and even more on the side of the road, so these were the perfect boots for the job.
