Your 1071is the TPR version? I personally don’t like the TPR finish. I understand that it’s thin, but it’s still a plastic resin finish. It also looks like the TPR flakes off from the photos I have seen. I prefer the more traditional finishing method. But, all of that is just my own personal preference. Lol.
no its vachetta, the 1071 tpr is nearly black

Bobcat Boot in Maryam Brown Horsebutt from Withered Fig...a truly "muddy brown" colour.
Still prefer hooks over the top 3-4 eyelets. These are a pain to get on and off and I have to remove the laces from the top eyelet completely.

Love the golden color on those. Have you you conditioned those?
Thanks! Yes I have conditioned them once with Saphir Renovateur. I like the current colour and to prevent them darkening further (except naturally) I will be using only Bick 4 going forward.

Someone I think here asked for Muschio next to Port1071. Here is port, muschio, comipel, and mocha shell from left to right (or top down.)
Thanks for the picture. Looking at the muschio next to the brown comipel they also share close similarities. Muschio is a much more interesting brown than I presumed. Have any of them been conditioned? Excluding the mocha shell.

2) the TPR coating is a really light coating that just wears off over time. It's Maryam's most popular HB currently. Its not like corrected grain plastic/bookbinder coating if that's what you're thinking. Its thin enough where you can condition it and the boots still patina. It comes off really easily honestly.
...
Yep. And I love it!

I don't know if it's the right place to post this, but I'm kind of underimpressed by the scratch resistance of CXL.

This is my natural CXL engineer boots after around 12 wears (120 hours ish). Deep winter weather.

The boots

The damage

BTW I'm not talking about oil displacement. I'm talking about actual scratches that shows damage to the hide.

never read CXL to be scratch resistant. quite the opposite as it ages quickly.

Expecting CXL not to scratch is like expecting snow not to melt in hell. If you look at CXL funny it will scratch.

CXL is known to scratch very easily. It seems to be a characteristic that people like as it ages quickly and shows patina. Sounds like that wasn’t what you were looking for which I’m sure is disappointing but that “damage” all looks very normal.

All the scratches and scuffs add character to the boots, u will learn to love them over time. But if u want to make them less noticeable apply a little Venetian cream and give them a

They look normal. Embrace the scuffs and scratches!
