When I got home from work today there was a nice package waiting for me on my front porch…my order from Oak Street Bootmakers. I eagerly opened the box and go straight to the good stuff, the shoes! I also ordered Venetian Shoe Cream which I highly recommend to clean, oil, and preserve your boots and shoes.
On to the shoes, these things definitely stand out. If Elvis is still alive living in Cuba these are the blue suede shoes he is rocking. The suede on these is great, no surprise coming from Horween. The Red brick camp sole is definitely a great color and stands out in a nice way. The rawhide laces add a nice touch of ruggedness. Overall this is a great, comfortable, and quality shoe. Now I just need the weather to get warmer for me to start wearing these. These are my first pair of Oak Street shoes and from my initial reaction they seem like great shoes.
