I'm ordered from the RW Heritage website.Yes, the outsole is a touch thinner than a regular pair of IR's for instance. I think that's what they were going for here -- sleeker and less heavy. The outsole material is a bit more flexible than other RW boots, so I don't think comfort level will be an issue. You could argue that the lack of toe structure will make them *more* comfortable.
