Yeah unseasonably warm here too. On a separate note, I Am experiencing a bit of pain on the inside top of my foot ( just above the big toe ) when flexing the foot and was wondering how the good people on this group deal with foot pain around the vamp of their boots.
That's probably where the creasing in the vamp is hitting the top of your foot, especially if it's a newish shoe. I counter this with thicker socks and with the hope that once the shoe breaks in better, the discomfort will likely disappear.

Yeah might be, just that I have used this pair around 20 times now. I was just thinking about the thicker socks so will give that a try. Two pairs more like maybe.

You can also put a padded band aid on the affected area of your foot. And massage the creasing area of the boot (with Bick 4 for example) to speed up break in of that area.

New purchase from the outlet:

Model: Robert
Leather: Ridge Kudu Reversed Suede
Sole: Dainite with leather midsole
Welt: 360

The leather is fantastic as spected with kudu, I was thinking buying the same model in brown MC leather, but since I wanted an informal shoe the kudu suede was a better option.

Highly recommended.

After a good long wait here are my MTO green and blue CXL 9 hole monkeys. Absolutely amazing job done by the shoe healer. For the detail hungry they are green CXL over blue cavalier, the 4444 last, 6 eyelets and 3 speed hooks, leather and two piece ridgeway sole.

How's the comfort of the single layer sole (Trickers light weight version) versus their normal offerings?
