Sorry for keeping you waiting for a post. I've got two and a half essays down, two and a half to go.
On a happier note, my boots came yesterday afternoon. My first impression on opening them was: "These are some big @#*&@#! boots!" 12 EE, and taller than I thought. I'm sure glad I didn't go with the 8" boots. I wore them around town and the apartment last night. They already look better than they did new. I can't wait to give these some tough love. Here are some pictures.
Compared to my 12D hiking boots.
Yes, that is selvedge denim. That's a post for another time. And a hairy dog's behind. Also another post.
The tags that came on the boots. American made baby.
I'm very glad with them. Worth the wait.
