.Mini ripple, cobbler will just peel off the outermost sole (ripples) & glue the mini ripple replacement.If replacing w/ like, Vibram 2021 or Gloxicut, the whole rubber sole units have to be lopped off, up to the white midsole [w/c are sewn to the Stitchdown leather midsole]__ then the 2021 or Gloxicut full soles are cemented to the midsoles = @round $80 to replace.If u want the outer soles (eg, Dainite, Vibram 700, GY Commando, Dr. Sole Cords, etc.) stitched to the...
👆🏼Right, unstructured low volume/profile toeboxes make for collapsed wrinkly scuffed toes ... evo is so sexy & nonchalant😎
Already know [these] are not for every1, but hey .... whatevs🤘🏼 Viberg "Licorice" Bison MocToe Chukka: Version 2.0 Voila! Like new again. The original honey/olive wasn't evo-ing very well, IMO. Plan was to DIY dye them to light-mid brown__ instead, they turned much darker w/ red undertone after a double coat. They're almost black & opaque, but will lighten up a bit & show more texture, as the dye thins out from brushing & wear ... as a result, the reddish undertone...

How about the width?! Narrower or wider than 4497 ... 4444?!

^Thanks🙏🏼 ... You're gonna love these. So glad I took the plunge. Cheers🍻'Really more of a lace-up kinda guy, so the Hopper was a huge leap for me.Out of the box, there was a lot of tugging to get in. For awhile there thought I messed up cuz it's my 1st time to handle boots w/o laces or zips🙄 ... Once I got 1 foot in, I was relieved__ it may take a few wears to soften & stretch the lower shaft [for easier access], but I'm confident now it's going to work🙏🏻'Sized up 1/2...
