    Beautiful boots. I would be interested to see more photos to get a better look at the patina. Natural CXL really seems to age nicely.

    Fantastic looking boots! I've been waiting to see a good pic of how the natural chromexel ages; they look great. Will definitely pick up a pair in the fall

    Unc, thanks. I'm keeping them! Thanks to all that offered their opinions, too. These are, bar none, the most comfortable pair of dress shoes I've put on new. Others, there's a little rubbing that eventually settles. I may have to wear a band aid here or there for a while. Not these. Anyone hear of bath slippers with a double sole? These are it!

    Sharp as a tac Don L. I'm liking the way the antique edge looks with king #8.

    Sweet. I've got the same shoe and I will tell you that it gets better with age. Like you, I also like having the Horween stamp inside the shoe. Very nice pick-up. Wear in good health.
