Eastland lumber up boot

I just picked these boots up off of amazon a few weeks ago, and this is probably the first time I've ever purchased a pair of boots because I actually wanted to, and I am so excited for it to start getting cooler so I can feel a little bit more justified in wearing them. Probably the main selling point on these boots for me was the great price I got on them. They ended up being only around $36 shipped, which i thought was a great price.
Initially I was a little bit wary in buying them having very little experience in the boot field, but I figured there wasn't a very huge loss at the price, and if I didn't like them I could return them back to amazon for a refund. But I decided to keep them, they seem to be built with a decent level of quality. I also went to my local work wear store and picked up some beeswax based waterproofing. I already have them all coated and ready to go for winter!

just a few more images

also-I chose a waterproofing that was specifically made from beeswax and NOT mink oil, because I did some internet research and seemed to get the idea that it is not good to use mink oil based products on leather in the long run because it softens and breaks down leather over time, ultimately ruining your boots.
