So I ordered a pair of Red Wings from the Brooks Brothers site (I really wanted the treaded version) and they just showed up.
What I received, however, isn't quite what is shown on the site. The boots that showed up have the Beckman sole, have three speed laces, and have a perfectly even finish.
I guess I'm fine with it as this sole is sort of a “best of both worlds” design. It's just kind of strange.
Has BB changed their design and not updated the images? Did I get...
