    Nice updates! Glad to see the thread is still alive and kickin' :).

    Would it be alright if I still joined a bit later? I initially meant to earlier in September, but unfortunately school and many things have been keeping me busy. I would love to, however, although it wouldn't be till the start of Jan! Cheers guys.

    Little update, fades are a bit more pronounced but I'm let down by shitty lighting: a few days before 2 months when these were taken

    I didn't say they lack character, just a typical fading for raw sanforized ones.

    Here's my 888, after 3-4 months (rotating, so just a guess), somehow they came out darker than before.

    when I see all the fades on that 888 it was no way to early to wash them. Good decision!
    and damn...you always tore your denim :-D

    Thanks. Yes, the major damage came from walking in a rainy day. You remember the lazy bum repair job I did (patching with a RRDS piece of denim)? The fit is awesome still, the combs are settling fine again. I think I will wash them more frequently now...

    Thanks. And indeed, these oxblood RWs are my favorite shoes right now (and maybe forever).
