@linafelt Here is my pair. BHs with commando mini lug half soles and antique eyes and hooks. The only thing I'd do different is go either toe cap or celastic toe box and not both. Having both makes the front a little bulbous like the RW Beckman boots. I was hoping it might work with the dress leather as it is thinner than the smooth leathers.
And a picture of my Brown Smooth BHs, my most comfortable pair..
