Got the Context boots. Quick question - does anyone have experience with the raw cord soles with the "ice grip plugs" in snow and ice? Wondering if these will be up to a Midwestern winter.

I have a very similar pair of whiskey LHS but mine were sold as irregulars.
I'm waiting for a pair too.
The black wingtip boots are still available if anyone is interested.
Leffot preorder.
I'm torn between the brown chromexcel Indys and the natural chromexcel Indys, both with commando soles. Any thoughts on the versatility of the different shades? Any difference in durability of the finishes? These would be used during Michigan winters.
