Really wish they had my size. Enjoy them!
Thanks brother - I'm sorry they didn't have your size.
Nice, enjoy them. Just make sure you have enough money left over for the BCSKs.
Oh believe me...that money is set aside and burning a hole in my pocket! ; )
Is that their picture of the calico grey roughout? I have a sample of that leather, and I can say, with absolute certainty, that that color is not a good representation. That looks a lot more like the warm grey that were used to make my personal boots. The calico grey is a much cooler grey with much more blue in it. Nice, though.
Yeah, that looks quite a bit darker. Here is my pair of service boots from last years collaboration with Haven to give you a better idea of what the color looks like.
Quick question you guys. How fast does cordovan leather usually crease? It seems after one day of wear, I've seen a fair amount of creasing on the top of the foot. I don't mind it, kinda speeds up the "patina" but wondering if that's just normal for the leather. Enlighten me...
Depends on the leather and your stride. But generally, yes, it can happen quickly. Pics?
For me the initial cordovan creasing happens quickly, pretty much during the first wear. The big rolls that you see on well worn footwear seems to take some time though.
My Snuff Suede Kudu Service Boot MTO came in the mail yesterday. I made the order in person at the factory back in June. These are on 2030 and have a toe cap, which I believe they haven't offered as a configuration. Thought I'd share!
Certainly a well-timed buy, those boots.
How did you know it was my birthday this week?
Very nice! Has more longing even more for my grey kudu boots. Was 55 and raining oday and was wishing I had them
Those are amazing...love the cap toe! Can you still walk into the factory and place a custom order? I thought those days were over.
