    Give 'em the boot! - All Model Evolution Battle

    Greetings,

    by multiple request, kayodic and me decided to open up a new thread for those, who recently got a new pair of boots(let's say during the last couple of weeks) and want to participate in showing their evolution, WAYWT, action shots or anything related here. It is a free-for-all-model battle, so we can show the differences in aging of the different leather types etc.

    So far, the contestants are:

    - Kayodic (2268)
    - Latterdue (875)
    - Concret (866)
    - Thatdamnbeaver (?) (213)
    - Redwinglover (?) (213)
    - Kmart (213)
    - JTB (9162)
    - Atzec (Yuketen 5 Eye Maine Guides in Horween Chromexcel - cryptic name, eh?)
    - Donovan (9013)
    - Foxy (9012)
    - Rotbart (8111)
    - Beautiful Freak (boondockers)
    - myself (2940)

    Anybody interested, please Pm me, but be sure to show some commitment in posting regularly and give us as much information about your pair as possible.

    Let's run this 1 year, until Nov. 1st 2012 and see who abused his pair the most. Prizes? If anybody wants to sponsor them - feel free to do so, but the main purpose is to have fun and share passion.

    Sure, I'll participate! Always love contests, just never get a chance to be in one. :p

    My pair: 213, 6" Moc Toe Oxblood. Not too much wear yet for me unfortunately (none at all in these pictures of course), but I should be wearing them a lot more soon.

    Allright, then Atzec is in (and for Kayo there's still a spot reserved). Trickers would be nice, as i haven't seen much aged pairs yet.
