Nice "party" @back👊🏼Actually, did that on HH w/ Bison backstay & caps. This time, I'm planning on an SD DressBrown countered w/ Natty CXL backstay .... On the 700s, 1/4 lowered blocked heels, close trim, no celastic, all antique eyelets.
^ True😕 ... But, we managed to white-knuckle the Hopper through, dint we ?! Edit: Since I don't have the Scout in my stable, I'm eager to score a pair, this time ... or maybe a Country Derby__ depending on the leather & color that will be available. Hopefully, on a 2045 or 110, even a 310, if push comes to shove.
Chillin' til we get an update on leather availability ... sometimes, it's the leather that dictates the build, IMO. I'm going for less common skins__ we've seen different textures of Bison [from more subdued zug/pebble grain-like, to the more exotic, reptilian steez. I'd like to see some Camel colors. 'Seems the leather got character__ would like to find out more about it & how it evos. I don't need another Porshe engine hiding in a VW hood ... eg, another iteration...
Looks like they're on 430 mini lugs= rubber soles__ not as durable as composite, like 700.Viberg seems able to tuck the 705 half soles as neatly ... dunno why White's aren't able to.
Rate of wear is about the same as Dainite.
@FOK__ 🙄Yeah, was afraid that that was the case ... Just've roll 🎲🎲 & see , then. Tnx for chiming in🙏🏻
^ 'Got Biltrite Neoprene Cords on my Dayton Drivers. Had them for 5yrs= @round 2yrs of effective wear. The soles are showing only slight wear__ sooo darn durable. Heels were recently replaced w/ Vibram composite. NEW Tho I don't mind this Biltrite as substitute 😬
^ Mind you, those are from normal city wear ... Nothing off road or strenuous. But, yeah, they're pretty cool__ to collect [on display] ... or for hanging out indoors ... on smooth or carpeted floors😬 Truth is, once the novelty of the CP design embossment wears in, you're left w/ nothing but rubber soles, really. Practical dude, like me, would rather make the most of a $750 pair of boots ... try to avoid the anguish & possible complications of a costly premature...
^ Like I said, re-heel, I don't mind__ but re-sole is more costly, takes longer ..... & opens up the possibility of a botch re-sole job 😕 Now, if I have to riddle the sole w/taps or w/e just to preserve the soles !?!?!? ... That'll be dumb. Its either you embrace the concept wholly or not. It was discussed awhile back that there's a limited availability on the CP half-soles. IMO, now is the time to re-evaluate, since GMTO has not kick into production just yet.
