    Has anyone purchased one wash FC? I received a pair from Okayamadenim and the patch was shrivelled and looked tiny like it had been boiled. Nothing like some of the ones on well worn pairs in this thread. Is this normal for one wash as my last pair of one wash I sold on so can't compare but their patch was like the raw from memory.

    That is a clear sign that it was soaked in hot (near boiling) water. I'd admit that I did the same mistake to my FC and boiled that leather to a crisp.

    Although I don't own a pair, these are one of my all time faves too. Looking good! 

    Thanks mate! Had been beating these boots for a while now. Especially on the occasional trip to Japan. The Amekaji store owners in Japan always mistook it for White’s. I always took that as a complement since White’s boots tend to be priced on the higher side.

    So your's were better apart from reinforcing with super glue and replacing the heel.......:ph34r:

    Just playing, no offence.

    None taken, but interesting to hear feedback from other users. :) 

    I'm definitely planning to acquire a Moonstar in the near future given the good feedbacks I'm hearing from the brand.

    My pair of low top red clouds started to disintegrate after about six months, the rubber is flaking off and coming unglued. I have some hi tops that have held up much better but they seem nowhere near as good the Moonstar-made stuff I've owned. 

    Mine faired a little better, although, I made sure to super glue any openings between the mudguard and the canvass. As well as replaced the heel after some heavy abuse and heel drags. The newer model RedClouds no longer had this freebie of an extra heel included, unfortunately.

    Perhaps you are right that Moonstar made stuff are for sure a cut above. Prices on the other hand is a litte steep as well.
