    Thanks!

    They'll be getting a nice buff from me first thing. I just really hope they fit

    I got mine 2 months ago and the waxy surface has turned into a dull look..
    What would be the best product to get that original look back?

    In the spirit of originals, my vote is to finish the job. (And then if ya ever decide to sell, pm me ;) )

    Thanks guys!

    And I'm with b-ewing on this one, I'd wax them evenly for the same reason.

    I like it. I think I would have done the reverse. However, I still think it looks great as-is or would look great if you finish waxing the whole thing.

    This looks great, I might have done the reverse but it looks good.

    Can you walk us through how you did it? Thinking of doing similar to my own boon dockers.

    It was very easy to do. Morgan mailed me the wax (the smallest container was all that was needed), and I applied a light coat using my finger. I hadn't stained these boots at all, but always seem to get the toes of my other boots dirty, etc... So the waxing started as a way to protect them and darken them (and why I didn't do the reverse). Got the idea from a pair pictured on the viberg blog.

    No, just a finger. The middle one works fine.

    Am I only one who has difficulty in breaking in a pair of roughout oxford? I've been wearing mine for months & my feet still get blisters here & there once a while.

    Same here. I got blisters on my heels with my 110 last oxfords, almost every time when I walked more than a couple miles in them. I think the problem for me is the weight of the shoe together with its height.

    I then ordered another pair half size bigger and used insoles - these have worked far better.
