I didn't want more 2030. I didn't want more wedge soles (with three pairs of Red Wings so outfitted and two Gloxi-Cut Vibergs already). I didn't want an unstructured toe.I love the upper choices as well, but hate the sole. If the sole is the only thing holding you back, PM me let's talk resole options
But how on earth was I supposed to pass these up?
I couldn't resist that combo of hides -- I don't remember seeing anything quite like them. I wanted to eventually pick up a pair of natural Chromexcel boots and don't have any footwear made of it (though I do have a big, beautiful backpack made entirely of it). I've been looking at some olive waxed flesh makeups by other makers. But the sum of these hides in this Bobcat is (for me) better than either alone in the other boots I've seen made of them.
So this leather and color combo won me over enough to overlook a 2030 last I already have plenty of, a sole type I have plenty of, and a toe structure (or lack of one) that I never really intended on trying.
@smartbrother, PM coming soon regarding re-soling options and recommendations. Unless otherwise recommended, I'll likely wear these down as one normally would before I re-sole them.
