Off with is head! A pox upon BeSpiff!! I hear you. There is definitely a difference between heavy wear and simply wearing them for Styleforum photos. And I can imagine that Minnesota winters add an extra degree of punishment to whatever you wear.
Be, They are on neo-cork. When you say your commandos "broke down", do you mean deteriorated? I have a few pair of boots on commando that see regular use, like my Cigar Indys, and those soles remain in excellent condition.
I remember when I bought my 405 Indys. The soles of my feet hurt quite badly for the first 10 or 15 wears. The fit was great all around out of the box but simply hurt when I walked around for extended periods of time. It felt like walking barefoot on a boulder. I never tried insoles but experimented with different socks.After a while, they became increasingly comfortable with every wear.

Repp, those are some stellar boots. I've always had fair dealings with Adam. Good to know he continues to keep an eagle eye on the distinction between firsts and seconds. Enjoy wearing those everywhere.
Don, you knocked it out of the park today!
Amazing shoes and boots, CEE. I particularly like the Ravello and Whiskey, but those Natty CXLs are nothing to scoff at! Thanks for sharing the great pics.
