    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.

    @Grendel, fab pair!
    do they have the half-slip?
    it'd be great if u can do a close-up side profile photo of the heel +sole when u get a chance? tnx.

    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.

    pretty sure thats a commando sole and not a 430. Not sure if they share the same model number or not, but they def. are different.

    Yeah, it's the commando mini-lug half-sole. It's not an option on buildaboot.com so I was emailing with Kyle at Baker's and he changed it before sending in to White's.

    I received my shipping notice today :)
    I will have my boots Monday.

    Looking for suggestions on treating natural cxl.
    I have black cxl 1,000 miles that I sno sealed and thats it.
    I am thinking about going the route of Obenauf's treatments.
    Starting out with their leather oil, then a coat or two of the heavy duty lp and follow up every other month or so with a coat of leather oil?
    Or I could just sno seal them out of the box and oil later or before or never?
    I dunno...

    Really nice pair! Congrats!
    This could be a nice replacement when my Wolverine 1K will be dead.
