Oops! My finger just happened to slip in all the right places within the cart section and now they’re inbound. Winters on its way I tell ya, or was that just the wife. The anticipation and build up to getting these was next level, I canny wait...

Aha! I opted for black in the end @neph93 , in the hope I'll still occasionally wear my preexisting, albeit lesser, brown boot collection.

Is it right to be having heart palpitations whilst I wait? I'm proper excited pal.

Being excited about this is entirely correct. They are ridiculously beautiful boots and a pleasure in every way. This may not be a good thing but the expectation and pleasure remain the same on your third, fourth and fifth pair

That’s, as always, reassuring @neph93 thank you.

So...After all this fuss, I’ve only just gone and ordered the wrong blinking size. US/UK blindsight. Gosport hopefully to the rescue. X

Hi there
Sorry for the delay. I can’t decide which pair I prefer, like you I have mostly brown boots but after I bought these in brown and were so good I went and picked up the black too. I think, and just my view, the black look a little smarter, the brown more rugged. Both fit really well and are wearing in pretty much equally. I think subconsciously I go to the black first for some reason.

Thanks @WeirdowithaBeardo , it’s brilliant you’ve added more pics too, I’ll certainly not be the only one to appreciate this. If mine build the character yours are displaying, I’ve a fear that a brown pair may one day get a look in too.  8)

They’ve crossed my mind @Giles believe me. However I can lack imagination, and some visual stimulus to see how these products would fare would help, hence me pleading here for pics.
The nattys no doubt possess the greatest potential, but as I’m personally buying into how they’ll look in 2 years time, a picture of a time worn pair would certainly get my slippy finger sliding again! I know these are new, so that’s not gonna always be possible, but to make my point, Redwings USA once included, alongside pics of a fresh pair, a photo of a totally broken in pair of their 8083’s, I was immediately soled,  :) my first pair of boots in fact.
Only a few things in life grow more beautiful with wear than a pair of Wesco’s.

Well, to put it mildly, after some 'initial wrestling' I feared these were just not right for me as I simply could not get my feet inside.

Gotta share my gratitude to @Chesson without your help today man, I think I may have given up, or at some point soon passed out!

Now my feet are in, I love em!
