I picked some black tie Morrison's off the sale page for $225. They must have been made during an olive run as they have shoe green upper thread and khaki sole stitching. Left boot was 1/2" shorter. A pair of olive packer's w/mp toe at the same price or $250 lasted a couple minutes as well. Timing is everything

My friend just showed me some green 10" Morrison boots on the 2nds site, in 9.5 or 10E I think - they looked pretty cool.  I don't know if he pulled the trigger or not - he was thinking so hard smoke was coming out of his ears.

Man, those look good! I may have to do something like that to my Bosses at some point.

Thanks guys. I'm more than happy with them. Never was happy with the stock Vibram lug sole.

Resoling cost me 145,-. Ger Wijsman was recommended by Mitch from Red Wing Amsterdam store.

Does anyone have direct comparison photos of the brown leather against the brown domain leather?
Leaning towards the brown domain leather currently, but I'm curious if anyone has real world side by side shots.
I'm thinking I'll get the custom process started soon. I recently sent my Alden Indy boots to get worked on and it's made me realize I really want a pair of heavier duty looking boots, while maintaining a sleek profile.
I'm thinking either the Foot Patrol, Packer or MP lasts with 7" or 8" height. Brass hardware and either 100 or 430 soles. All the photos here have really sold me on Wesco quality so I'm just looking for that final push to get the process starts.  :P

Here you go.




The Domain is a much shinier leather than the Brown and not quite as heavy, also the Brown ones have darkened a bit from new due to a coat of the supplied Bee Oil.
