^ Didn't you buy those used. They need to be new for the contest.

Here's some photos of mine. I try to wear each pair 2-3 times per week.

Ah shoot. I figured 3 wears was little enough to qualify as new. Oh well, I'll just pretend I'm in the contest anyways..

Just as a reminder, Horween Chromexcel is not horsehide. It's made from cowhide. Shell Cordovan is what Horween is know for, and thats made of horse butt.

@coleslawyum
We use the chromexcel from horsehide origin, we've checked it also from the specification list when we purchased the leather.

@theblackgoat
Sorry for the inproper post, we're so excited to join the contest. If there's anything in our post that not proper, please tell us so we can edit. thank you very much.

blackgoat, did you ever watch their video? i think they're still relatively new and this could be some nice publicity.



it's impressive that they make it all by hand and a sewing machine.

either way, pumped to see how this works out.

So certain colours of CXL are horsehide?

The naming of Horween's colours is terribly confusing; every shoe company seems to have different colours, or at least different names for the same colour.

The Santalum "tan" looks an awful lot like the "rust" on Wolverine's 1000 mile boots. Does that mean those are horsehide as well?

On a less 'are these shoes horsebutt' vein - it's gotten blisteringly hot and muggy in NY already, so my boots are taking a little break for now. We'll see if I can get some wears in over the summer.

Yeah, if you check out the leather thread there're quite a few items there made with the burgundy coloured horsehide CXL.
CXL is really just the trademarked name of Horween's re-tanning method - I'd imagine, with a bit of tweaking, it can be applied to leather from many origins.
Though most CXL is still cattlehide (unless stated otherwise...)

my original entry was Baker's SemiDress HH MTO, but kinda tweaked the order to HH x Bison toecaps + backstays. so, these may not qualify anymore.

just got a working camera right now_ thought i'd xpost to share.
***got 3 other pairs of laces that i interchange, in case you find these reds unsettling ;)

beautiful boots, can't wait to see them with a lot more wear. are you going to continue to get them reheeled with CPs?

this thread has the potential to be so much more but in a really slow way, since boots don't really age like jeans. i like this slumbering beast of a thread a lot though. a lot of beautiful pairs around.

Thanks! I'll probably re-heel them at some point in the future, or I might just wait till the sole catches up. This particular horsehide is a tank. Looks like it'll take a lot of abuse. Looking forward to some more pics.

Sup guys. Long time no post.
Brooklyn Bootworks Cobble Hill coming along nicely. I've treated them with sno seal and polished them up since the last update. Probably going to replace the laces at some point soon as the originals are wearing pretty thin.
