This has to be the hardest part of waiting for new boots: Screenshot_20211113-133428_Chrome.jpg

It looks like they made up a USPS shipping label then found out they aren't shipping to Australia at the moment, so they sent it UPS instead (I got a tracking number for USPS sent to me, then about an hour later a UPS one).
Good news is now I should have them by the time I play my gig on Saturday instead of early December (maybe).

Whether I can comfortably wear them at the gig is another matter 😅

Can't wait to update with some photos!

I am gently braking in my new W&C Roberts. They are very much a casual rather than work boot for me, I don’t need work boots in the traditional sense. I wondered is anyone has any thoughts on what they use to condition/polish this sort of leather. I don’t need to waterproof them of anything, just keep them nice

Saphir is very popular and has a relatively small impact on coloring. Most treatments will cause some darkening in the short term, just be aware.

Wyatt & Dad did a nice rebuild on some of our boots. Great channel.

I really liked that video! I sent a pair of USA made Chippewa's there for a resole. I live in northeast Connecticut and there isn't any cobblers that I know of up here. Does nicks rebuild any of the other PNW boots?

Not currently just due to demand. I’d like to get back to being able to

In the past few years you have really gotten your name out there with your own youtube channel and collaborations with rose anvil and carl murawski. You have been kicking some serious butt. When did you and your dad take over/buy Nick's? Some people in 2014 said that Nick's wasnt what they use to be in the 90s. Seems to me like you guys are thriving and doing great! When you bring back the rebuilds of other manufacturers I have a pair of my dads whites that he bought in 2000 that would be really cool to get rebuilt by you 😁

Thank you, I appreciate it. Our boots are definitely the best they’ve ever been from a QC and construction standpoint. We started in 2013. I would be happy to do a rebuild of your whites.

Hey all, just got a bigger than expected shipment of W&C tan latigo in and have enough for 12 more pairs. Will probably go fast, so tell your friends, please. Can make them pretty much however you want here:
