 It's a shoe care regimen.  Go to the Alden thread and search for the Mac Method.
 I was just told I should have bought some $400+ Camina boots to use as beaters so it's all relative.
 When I talked about my boots this way about two years ago, I was called weird.  Can't remember the thread. What I had said was that the textural quality of boots was as important to me as the fit and looks because when I sit in meetings or whatever and cross my legs, I like feeling the touch of the leather because it's soothing and helps if the meeting is boring. That's one reason I don't have an obsession with shell as some others do.  I personally don't think the...

I've tried to nail down a specific reason but I'm still not sure. Part of it may be that I don't like this version of a commando sole. It's more appropriate for this boot but I still prefer Alden's commando sole. It may also be that the heel is too wide for my foot. Although the 2030 doesn't have what I'd call a narrow heel, somehow the heel counter on that last seems to cup and secure the back of my foot nicely.I know you have boots in both these lasts. What's your...
