Thanks Brock. I love the  look of the height and function for me. I have short big calves so anything higher would probably be uncomfortable . 9” might be ok but 10 or 11 would be way too much. My one issue is the sole. I don’t believe it’s non slip. And if it is, it’s no wear near the nonslip level of the raptor sole.
Maybe so. Maybe not

The standard Vibram #100 isn't oil resistant (non-slip). You have to go with the #100F (same sole design, different chemical composition), it comes with an upcharge from Wesco. The Raptor soles are non-slip.

Sorreeeee....

It’s great in Norway for the ice because the lugs catch on any bit of grit, stone or ripple, but oil not so much. I’ve always been tempted to try the mini lug or raptor on sheet ice, but I don’t think anything other than spikes works on that in reality.

Yep, as someone who works on oil covered floors, you want the 100F. Even those need the claws roughed up a bit for maximum traction in heavy oil

So one walk through the snow and the dye had come off the sole and heel Lifts. Is this normal?

Thanks bro. Funny thing is I was torn between brown and natural. Now I’ve had both

No problem. I had similar thoughts when mine turned out such, since neither my Warrens or Jobmasters did. One of those had been coated with oil before they saw snow, and the other aren't really great for winter though. I'd always assumed it was actually salt exposure

I was thinking salt might be the culprit. They salt the shit out of my sidewalks and there were puddles so.... but I don’t mind really. Thanks again

I’m pretty sure it is.

All mine have gone that way with the exception of my burlaps which din’t see much snow action. Even my first pair that I religionskunnskap used snow seal on. Wabi-sabi baby.

Thanks Reuben. I actually like the natural look just as much as brown. Was a tough decision for me. These boots really held up in the snow.
