    Well I ended up with a pair of these in tan so here we go again with another long term test and review. There's plenty of people who own this boot so let's see the pics of what you have and let's hear your thoughts on 'em. Here's mine fresh from the box. Out of the box they were very oily so I'm not going to treat them right away. About 15 minutes after taking the pics I took the dogs for a walk in the nice wet snow that got dumped on us. Yeah, I'm not going to be nice to these at all but that shouldn't come as a surprise.

    How long have you had your tan boots? How's the color/patina developing?

    I'm also interested in seeing how they have developed!

    Also, how is the sizing on the Addison? I'm assuming it's the same as the original? .5 - 1 down?

    I wear my size which is 8.5. It seems a lot of people do size down but I don't. Somewhere in the monster review thread I explained why I don't.

    I just bought a pair of these as well, haven't worn them yet though.

    I sized down from my normal 11 to a 10.

    haha. I kind of do, just 'cause I feel like I'm going to rip them soon. But, FUCK THAT! Buy these boots, you WILL enjoy them. I'm loving mine.

    So here we are in May. My Addisons have been through a couple of hikes now. Just for snicks I decided to take a few pics on the trail. This gives you an idea of what I put all my 1K boots through. In the monster review thread I posted a few pics when I had a pair resoled (brown original 1Ks) after a year of all kinds of harsh treatment. The boots cleaned up well and the patina to date is awesome. The pics are still up if anyone wants to see what they look like. Awwwww they got some slime and muck on them.... [​IMG] Oh No My Addisons are Ruined! LOL! by DYSong Photography, on Flickr [​IMG] Awwww Muddy Boot by DYSong Photography, on Flickr This is how I clean them when out and about hiking. No joke and no wet feet either..... [​IMG] Cleaning Your Addisons Trail Style by DYSong Photography, on Flickr I'll brush them down in a few days and apply some boot oil. They'll be good as new.

    these boots are awsome. I kop them, but they were just slightly too narrow. Had to return, but otherwise would have kept them for winter beater.

    Yeah I torture them. This is what they look like right now. Def in need of a good cleaning, a lot of boot oil, a SnoSeal treatment and some elbow grease. I'm supposed to help out at a CCW class on Sunday and the shooting part will be done on an outdoor muck infested range. I'll clean them up after we are done. My guess is all will be fine and they'll have one helluva a patina going as well.

    LOL! They are on the right way! Perhaps it's the angle and a bit of barrel distortion that's throwing you off.
