    Shoes that look better with age...

    Damn. And I thought my heels were well-worn.

    I use Obenauf's lp, mainly because they get scuffed and wet a lot at work. They look dull at first but after a some wearing and brushing, the shine comes back. I have Obenauf's oil too. Feel like they need some of that soon. I was really considering chromexcel, but since these were boots mainly used for work, I wanted something a little tougher like distressed smooth, and after some aging they look pretty similar Think I'll go with the same heel and sole as before. I do a ton of walking in them and was happy to get 3 years out of the vibram 700 and quabaug heel. A half sole and full leather heel stack would be cool but I feel like the full sole is better for my conditions. Considering asking for the heel to be more of a straight taper, like Viberg does, instead of a logger style.

    I remember seeing this pair on here or styleforum and it helped me decide on going with distressed smooth leather bounty hunters. 3 years later mine look pretty similar. :]

    Let's take a moment to appreciate all the hard work wildland firefighters in White's/Nick's/Wesco boots are doing in California. I live 200 miles away from the Campfire in northern California, but the air quality here is near toxic levels. Saw this image today on my feed and it really struck me.

    They're distressed smooth bounty hunters. I think the vast majority of people walk/run in a way where the outside of the heel is the first contact point.

    My work boots are getting close to three years old. Really need to saddle soap and scrub them. Dangerously close to needing a re-heel and sole.

    video games ruined my life

    built a new pc and starting to play fortnite and overwatch on a 144hz monitor. feels so smooth. sea of thieves looks like a super cool game concept. resisted the temptation to buy it so far. $60 is pretty steep for the amount of content they have for it. maybe i'll get the game pass for $10 a month and see where it goes.

    wonder what kind of sole they'll use on the whites. maybe something raw cord?

    I had wedge sole red wings and then got White's with vibram 700 and stacked curved heel. TBH the White's are more comfortable, once the heel is worn in to make a smooth transition, and I walk a shit ton every day in them for work. The support the boots give makes up for the lack of cushion. It's like riding a BMX bike vs a mountain bike with suspension. If you land smooth with a good transition, you don't need a bunch of shock absorption.
