Not sure if anyone remembers the fiasco I had back in October/November with having ordered a set of boots from CABoots - the short version is they sent me suede and din't tell me they were changing them.
I know - not accurate at all. So I sent them back to the company and asked for either a refund, or a new set made from propper materials and some of my input and reference photos. After six long months of research on materials and looking at photos, I have finally received a replacement pair made of canvas. They were sent in a natural color canvas since I told CABoots I would handle the color and weathering myself. Here are some pics of them painted and weathered. I would love some feedback from some people. I know the elastic section is a bit large, but since I have a set of Man of War's boots on order, I can live with this for now.
What do you guys think?
The company has informed me that they will be reopening a factory in Mexico, and using this as a template for their boot, but that the materials may be slightly different. So I have a one-of-a-kind boot for the moment.
