    Looks good, thanks for the comparison PIC.

    That looks so good. Can you comment on the Cordovan No. 8 color as compared to the Beckman's Black Cherry?

    Also, if one already owns a pair of Beckmans in Black Cherry, would Rust or Brown be the better color for W1K if the goal is to have the most variety (I assume the #8 would be closest)?

    I don't have the Beckman, but since the black cherry color is also burgundy, I would say go for the brown. The brown 1000 mile boot actually looks a little bit purple/red under sunlight, but the overall color is much darker than the #8.

    I have the Beckman in Black Cherry. When I decided to buy the W1K, I decided to go for the Brown instead of Rust precisely for the reason that I don't want two pairs of boots that have similar color.

    When I did my research, I didn't come across the Cordovan #8 - I don't think it is even on their official website.

    Thanks for the advice. Are the rust and cherry that similar? I came across bellyhungry's photo, and the cherry and brown look pretty similar here. Maybe it's just the lighting. Would you mind taking a photo of your boots as well?

    Next to my RW Beckman that has been worn 4-5 times and broken in. Color wise: RW is black cherry while the W1K is brown.

    It could just be the photo, but those Red Wings look a lot more like the cigar color than black cherry to me.

    :fistbump:



    It is due to the lighting. Under overcast sky or artificial lighting, the Black Cherry looks almost brown.

    Will take some outdoor pics under sunny sky weather permitting...

    Crane, what kind of boot oil do you use? I see you talk about snoseal all the time, but you don't mention your boot oil very often.

    Filson's according to this post:
    http://www.styleforum.net/t/205531/...rdovan-1000-mile-boot-review/480#post_5784630

    He's said somewhere else in this thread though that he only uses it because it's readily available to him but Obenauf's works just as well.

    I've found a pair for $260 and I don't think I can pass it up even though I know I should.

    Hmmm and along those lines I just happen to have 2 pair of browns in size 9.5 and 10.5 sitting around in the back room at the store.

    I just grabbed some for $250. Pretty pleased with them so far; Obenauf's is in the mail and I think I'm going to get a commando sole put on them since they have little traction as is.
