Do Dr. Sole raw cord soles ever soften up? They should be broken in by now, but they still feel stiff.

I would hope so, though it would be nice to have an inkling of how the narrower version looked before dropping that kind of money. I wonder if they would do 145 oxfords or the 160 lasts for MTO since those are discontinued technically?
I had a hiker stamped D it was noticeably narrower than the other pair I have as you would expect.

Awesome man. Love natural chromexel for the golden brown patina they develop. Best of luck with them😊
Thanks! recently, I am getting more interested in lighter leather special natural color, and I am sure they will age nicely in very short period of time.

I have about 50 wears on mine so far, absolutely no sign of wear or becoming less stiff. They seem indestructible.

I don't find them uncomfortable though, so I like these qualities.

Anyone take a different size from 2030 and 1035?

I feel like the 2030 runs half a size longer :p

My experience with sizing on the 1035 and 2030 last was that it depended on whether it was a structured or unstructured toe. I have a pair of 1035 lasted boots with an unstructured toe and they fit me better than the pairs I have on the 2030 and 1035 lasted boots with structured toes all of which are the same size.

I also picked up the huckberry x Viberg secret Horween workshoe horsebooty service boots. Nice bourbon color on these, with a bit of grain showing through on the quarters.
