    Hi everyone, An update on my flamepanda aka Peng’s short shift engineers. They were unsealed and untreated natural horsehide, and they attracted dirt like magnets. They were glorious to look at when they were new, but I would not consider the dirt and wear they picked up as ‘patina’. Did not really like how they aged. So I got caught in a huge thunderstorm recently wearing these boots. Being the leather they were, they soaked up the water like a sponge. After air drying for a few days, they still were darker than the original colour. So I decided why not, and just decided to clean and condition them, accepting that they probably would not get back to their original colour. After some conditioner and wax, these are what they look like now. I kind of like how they look, and you can see the marks and nicks that was inflicted on the boots.

    Not sure how you guys think of Visvim, these come from the FW12 collection. Made from Horween bison if I’m not wrong. Got these during the 11.11 sale on Rakuten and had a 10% off. These came with full of pet’s hair and scuffs. Gave them a good clean and conditioning and they look great and well worn in already. The sole looks like they can go on for another few years before a resole.

    broke this out of storage a while back. They have stretched out quite decently! The lack of back pockets still bother me because I tend to put things in my back pockets.

    Finally got a chance to take photos of flamepanda’s boot in natural light. The texture of the raw horsehide is insane. The leather has an almost velvety texture that you can see the knap when you run your finger across it. You can also see the imperfections on the horsehide, which is a plus point for me. Flamepanda did a superb job with the norvegese stitch. Very clean job on the mid soles, which I have also used some boot wax to polish up. Last photo is a comparison with my natural horsehide RDT Roots after on-off ~6 months of wear. The RDTs has darkened up quite a bit. Didn’t notice until the comparison shot

    Just got my flamepanda boots in this evening. Sorry for the dim photo. Size 8 in his 181 last fits exactly like my Motor Engineers size 8. First impression of the horse leather on these is that it is almost as thick, but not as stiff as other horsehides I own, but it is a hefty boot. Chromexcel pouch is a small gift from him.

    I sure hope they fit well! I gave him information on the shoe sizes of the other various brands such as Viberg, Alden etc...

    Flamepanda just sent me pictures of my completed boots. Untreated horsehide from the Cloe Tannery. I’ve been so tempted to get a second pair from him, but I was trying to hold off till I am able to receive these from him. If these are sized good, I’ll go for a second pair. I don’t mind the wait.

    Yea. They are NWT. Tagged as “Broken Raw”. Some whiskering on the hip and knee areas, however they do seem that they might still have some more shrinkage left in them.

    Recently started wearing the Junky 7161 again. Almost forgot how nice this pair is. Edit*: Just realised why they were in storage for a bit. Forgot how much SC's denim shrinks when hot soaked. Size 31, but shrunk down to almost a 29 after a hot soak. Trying to stretch them back out to pre-soak measurements again.
