You can do all kinds of customization with Rancourt for a modest upcharge. This should let you choose the exact type of sole, leather, etc. Rancourt has a number of options for rubber soles and light colored brown leather. If there were any other tweaks to the shoe, like stitching details, that you want, Rancourt accommodates those pretty easily. You should check out the Rancourt thread over in Streetwear for a lot better info. In my experience, Rancourt is easy to work with.
