If you were interviewing the CEO or a top executive from a high-grade Men's apparel company, what questions would ask them?
Happy Canada Day. It would be a good idea to use a non-silicone waterproof. Even though you don't plan to wear them in the rain, treating them will give you a little protection against an accidental spilage. Also try to avoid wearing them with jeans. The denim will stain the leather.

If that's the case any brand will wear quickly. The intent of a sole protector is just that. It...
We use both Vibram and Topy. No complaints on either. Vibram is thicker and IMO has a better tread. Some prefer Topy. Topy will outlast any product I've seen with the same thickness.
If you are going on the Northway exit 19 has this: http://www.factoryoutletsoflakegeorge.com/ Not nearly as large as Woodburry but worth the stop. Decent selection, way easier and less crowded than Woodburry. I'll be up there this weekend.

Yesterday, I had to ask a friend that manages a Kinkos store around the corner if he could send the pictures of the new Church's seen earlier in this thread! Maybe DWFII will post the pics...

But every pair of machine channeled shoes I've ever seen was done like the first figure. Also, just to be clear, we always cut a groove for the stitching to lie in, as well.
