Yeah, those came out really beautifully. Every once in a while a boot comes off and I just stop and look at it and this was definitely one of those times. Great choices and thanks for the kind words.Shuyler and his team are killin it. These boots far exceeded my expectation, and I havent even put them on yet! I am just taking in the sights and smells of this gorgeous pair of boots. I ordered on May 1 and received them today, so exactly 11 weeks...hats off to Nicks for under promising and over delivering.
When the color 8 CXL was made an option, I thought about switching from this milled harness burgundy veg tan. But I am glad I stayed with it. The leather has an amazing feel and texture with the pebbly grain. I can tell these are gonna be a way easier break in than my BP’s were.
The craftsmanship is impeccable. Not a missed stitch, loose thread or wavy stitching anywhere on these boots. Simply a perfect build IMO. One thing I was surprised with was that these have the celastic toe. Not sure why but I was thinking they would have the soft toe. Not that I am dissatisfied, i actually might prefer it.
Again, @Nicks Boots Shuyler was amazing to work with even with changes I made like the honey sole and flip flopping on my choice of leather. He is a patient man and took it all in stride. Here are some crappy pics I took real quick when they arrived.

Let me add that the fit team at Nicks does an incredible job, they are true pros. It took a fit sheet, three phone calls and three pairs of Nicks to dial in my size. On the third call, we decided to move up a width to 9E and change the upper to a 10B. And man, lemme say, these are perfect, they feel better than any other boot I have ever owned...and this is day one.
