Don’t discount sanding.
I agree with sanding when the edge becomes very worn or nicked, but for normal touch-ups or a"refresh", there is no need to go to all that trouble... edge dressing or resolene for minor stuff works a treat.

@discomute There has to be a tack or saddle shop somewhere in AUS, they would likely have the products you need. Or Tandy Leather has a shop in Minto, AUS, they 100% have it and many other products you may be interested in... For applicators - truly a specialized product here - cotton swabs.

Happy Day! Both pair of Black Friday boots have arrived. Inside pix due to rain, gloom and dark midwest but couldn't be more thrilled. Thanks to Bakers..Brandon/Kyle & team and the folks over at Whites for sure. This thread was immensely helpful picking what I wanted and avoiding traps.

Both like butta...and Legal Eagle, the smell is great too as have inhaled all 4!

Both are 8' SJ on the 461...many here like the 5/6" but I like a boot to feel like one.

Both standard heels, single sole 430's, rolled top and cap toes
The brown is Dark Brown FC toes, counter and back/Almond FC on the rest..Kyle said the tan was out and I like it.
The black is also FC all over except adding the WB vamp for some difference and interesting wrinkles...

These wont see hard duty so will put a shine on them after some break in but both fit ideal as is to me.

Off to lace and wear em! Enjoy the weekend all

One quick polite request from myself to all on here... There seems to be a culture of listing the specs of the boot you have ordered once you have ordered it, then once the boots arrive just post some photos "my boots have arrived".

Of course there end up being pages of posts between the two... it makes it difficult to use the search function!

Whilst I wouldn't want to dissuade anyone from posting the posting what they wanted then they order, it would be great if people posted their exact specs with their initial photos

PS. Even if I did this with mine

Hey discommute...is there a spec you wanted that i failed to list for you?
Obviously didn't want to create a format faux paux so soon after committing a punctuation error.

No, I had intentionally waited until someone had posted pictures with specs so it didn't seem like I was 'telling someone off' at anyone. I'm using you as a model to emulate here :)

Yessssss my Natty CXL SDs shipped! This will be my first pair of Natural CXL anything. I am so freaking excited. They are on the 38 Swing last with a cap toe and half Vibram comp sole. Nothing special to most but amazing to me. Fingers crossed the build and last all match up this time!

No worries...although I did forget to mention that I upgraded (?) to the black technora thread for the black pair. There was an upcharge but like it better than white threading as just to militant looking.

The FC is very supple and comfortable out of the box and rotating from black to brown today. Great fit but do admit to some ache in my arches, otherwise good to go.

Oh my yes I am interested in that. Was that through Baker's and not White's? Can we get a snap?

stepped onto a Brannock device tonight. Would you guys call these measurements a 12.5C ??

My 11.5D SD’s & BH’s in soft toe fit perfect. 12E for steel toe on 55 last.
