    Sazon, those look fantastic. Just curious; where are those laces from?

    Cannot wait for my Viberg waxed flesh....

    Thanks, saz. Always stylish, my friend.

    I'm digging trenches more and more, just a little iffy on the last shape; toe box seems very wide and rounded. I've read great things about OSB and want to give them a shot and do MTO.

    Thank you! These are the laces that came with my Alden Indys. I had replaced the Indy laces with more of work-boot type lace as soon as I got them.

    Be careful what you ask for especially if it's done in a condescending manner.

    I thought Sazon's waxed flesh boots were the turning point. I thought the uptrend would continue.

    After lurking on this thread for a bit, I finally decided to take the plunge with a pair of colour 8 Trench boots... Not regretting it one bit! Love the colour and the fit, they are surprisingly comfy out of the box, totally opposite from the hell of a time I had breaking in my red wings.

    Everything looked great out of the box, except a small nick, which I don't think I would even notice a week down the road. Hopefully these eventually look as good as the boots I've seen here!!

    Just to add my voice to those saying that the wax flesh looks great. I prefer it actually to my natural CXL. OSB ought to offer it as a standard order, assuming they have a good supply of it...

    I know lots of you have probably seen this pic elsewhere, but for a sense of how the wax flesh ages, here is a Viberg:

    I got my boots back from OSB. They resoled and repaired the stitching issues that you guys might have seen in some pairs of shoes. I'm floored by the end result. Going from a cristy sole to this, it's mindblowing. I can't speak enough good things about the way the people over at OSB have been. They even gave me a bottle of VSC.
