    Looked bigger than a 9, that's for sure. I'd guess 11, 12? Not sure what size you are - you may want to call.

    I'm not sure how that'd be possible.

    I like the browns out of the box but I think after they get used for a while they look too dark. I think to solve that I could go with rust and wait for it to darken to the brown colour.

    I would love to have them all, but for those of you on the fence I suggest rust. I've got that color and they work well for me with jeans or khakis. For a second pair I think I'll get a bit snazzy and go for some 2-tone Addisons!

    Just got a pair of new to me Addisons in Tan, unbelievably comfy boots, and I am extremely happy I went with a half size down as recommended, fit is perfect. Reading through the thread I do see most of the recommended care, but was wondering if there was one product in particular that would be best to keep indigo from raw denim bleeding onto the upper parts of the shoe, even if it was to be used only on the upper area. I would be okay with a little indigo bleeding onto it over time which is inevitable, but slowing it down a good bit, or blocking it entirely would be ideal. I am perfectly okay with the product darkening the shoe, and am looking forward to them darkening more naturally over time regardless. Thanks in advance!

    Snoseal or LP. Indigo sticks electrostatically so once it stains it tends to be nearly impossible to remove. The heavy waxes in snoseal and LP tend to minimize this binding process. Of course the stains are part of the patina process so personally I don't worry about it much.

    It's not shell, just burgundy colored CXL.

    I have to ask. The boot on the right - clown shoe, baseball shoe or lens distortion ?

    Could be some barrel or angle distortion. It might be size 9s next to 14s too. I didn't really worry about that. It's a side by side color comparison under the same light in a single shot.

    I was thinking it was because of difference in size.

    After Obenauf's and Sno-Seal treatments, I've been wearing my new brown W1Ks for a few hours a day for the last couple of days. They're very comfortable. Does anyone have any suggestions on some medium weight socks that will stay up? My current socks fall down, bunch up, and work their way into the top of the boot, which is very annoying. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
