It can be tricky, but if its dry you should condition it. Deadstock Maryam HB is THIRSTIER than college coeds on spring break. My port ones just drank in the bick 4.
Do you think once I wear them the oils will come to the surface naturally?

A few places carried it. I bought mine from *Blue Button Shop. Benny’s Store/Take 5 also carries it. Though some places said it was Italian Horsebutt. I think some were horween and others Maryam.

edit:blue button shop not L&F
I think Joerogan on here posted a pair recently, the box said horween HB, but as you say may be the case different runs used different leather.

My box said horween. But I’m sure it was wrong as it’s unlike any known horween Horsebutt. Plus S&S advertised it as Italian brown Horsebutt.

That was my thought. I've never seen Horween HB with that texture, only Italian.

What about the Cxl Horsebutt + the crust horsebutt stuff?
CXL Horsebutt aka workshoe has the top grain buffed like all CXL to give it a uniform appearance. Could be crust but the leather still seemed like a veg tan. The Roughout side of a crust workshoe butt would still look like a chrome tanned leather. This stuff feels and looks like a veg tan.

Sorry to bring this up again, but last week I had mentioned not hearing any word nor updates from Milohshop about a pre-order I had placed for the Mushroom Chamois service boots last year around November. At the recommendation of some of you guys, I tried DMing through IG (along with e-mailing directly and sending a message through their website several times over the months) with no successful response. Since I have never really been in this situation before, I was wondering if any of you who have been have any suggestions on what to do from here? I was thinking if I would have to unfortunately resort to requesting a chargeback from Paypal, but the pre-order deposit was made last year, and I also have no idea how to go about the route. Would appreciate any recommendations, as I am at a loss.

A lot of people have had really bad issues with communication with Miloh Shop including myself. You really shouldn’t have to exert this much effort to get in contact with a shop
