It's getting rough in this affiliate thread
Honestly, it's going to be a tough sell on this forum for any new / unknown vendor here. I feel like the ones that succeed are open to constant scrutiny, and adopt a strategy of transparency.

Completely agree, that makes complete sense to me. I like the flexibility and lightness of the single, so it's what I enjoy best. I can see the need for double or rubber in different cases. My GG boot with HAF soles and toe taps feel equally correct on that shoe to me. They are a nice change of pace at times.
Friend, it is all personal preference based on your needs. I have three Arrans with single soles, with no taps or topy. Single sole is my go-to now for GG, I put my trust in the quality of the Barker soles. I would not blame others for doing different however.

Trying to take advantage of the anniversary promo, and so far I'm only inspired to pick up the Walkton in a combo leather make-up. I have the St. James, so I would like to order a different model here. Might just pick up the Oxford (cap toe) model, since incredibly I don't have this staple in my wardrobe still.
I would argue that it might be some what common, but certainly not normal. We forget on this forum that a typical GG customer (or any shoe customer for that matter) is not expected to have shoe construction knowledge as a prerequisite of on going shoe care. A can of shoe glue is not an essential part of a shoe care kit.This is a small construction issue, which should be handled by a professional if possible. While it might be a simple fix for those that have the tools...
