Lets see your stacks with the boots. I stack and boot

Quick and dirty:



I think I'm just about ok with these 301's actually. My SBG BB's are hemmed a little shorter,  and I probs won't wear my 555's with these boots. But my 666 XHS may need re-doing.

Cheers fellas! These jeans have reached soft as jogging bottom stage, which helps, I think. Boots are boss either way. New, bad habit, I fear...

very nice @neph93 !

Edit: those look perfect!  Even a bit longer hem/inseam would work IMHO so the UHR might not be as bad as you think.

Thank you sir! MY XHS (I have no UHR....yet) are pretty new and not broken in, soaked or anything. So I'm gonna have to spare them anyway to avoid crocking the boots. Kinda stupid ´cos no trainers until summer (I live in northern Norway) and 25oz is not a summer weight jean. New black boots may be the answer :D

Thank you! I adore them.

Dont you have much experience with crocking? I have a new pair of XHS I'm dying to wear these with but I figure if indigo gets into the rough out it's never coming out again...

Pretty much.  Might as well accept it; wabi sabi and all that.

@neph93, same as above. I think the embedded indigo adds to the overall character of these wicked boots.
Wabi-sabi (侘寂) represents a comprehensive Japanese world view or aesthetic centred on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. NICE

I'm not averse to appreciating the beauty of the inevitable ageing and gradual deterioration in objects, through time and usage. However, I have to say that splurging brand new indigo all over these boots is a bit closer to the ancient Liverpudlian spiritual discipline "the way of the vandal", also known as "the zen of breaking shit", for my liking. I'm going to have to bite the bullet though as the XHS denim is positively screaming to be worn with these boots.

Thanks guys, have a great weekend :)

They do look amazing. If I thought mine would come up like that I wouldn't think twice. It's the brand new jeans I'm worried about. If they had a couple of months wear then a bit of indigo=no probs. The amount of bleed off new jeans is what makes me worried about the difference between wabi-sabied and buggered.

Taking a day off from the slopes in Sweden with my new, favourite pairing.  Alpine skiing is boss 'n all but it's good to take a break. And after walking around like Master Chief in ski boots the Smoke Jumpers feel like slippers
