care to mention why? and what is the use?

 

Well, basically the complete opposite reasons to the ones you mentioned. IMO it looks more elegant, more balanced and overall far better than a regular double sole. Functionally, I really don't see the point of having a double sole in the middle of the shoe either, since it doesn't have any real function there.

Agree.  It's not so much a question of right or wrong, but subjective preference.  For someone to scoff and say "you can't be serious" seems to suppose that their personal preferences must apply to all.  I so don't get that.

 

I find the full double sole looks comparatively heavy and clunky.  Which is more than fine on a big stompin' Budapester, but less suited to the sleeker, more elegant Italian lasts to my eyes. Of course, others may have a different preference and that's fine.

Agree 100%, Plus the fact that Vass compensates the heal hight to adjust for the sole thickness, hence there is no problem with balance.

Indeed.  I'm quite confident that they have the whole balance thing figured out.

RogerP - knowing you I dont want to get into a tit for tat rebuttal of what you think and say. I also dont think I have to justify or appreciate you taking the role of a judge to pass your honorable decree.

Your style and preference is polar opposite of mine, ur happy so am I.

I enjoy a half sole on my boots, specially because I get the same longevity of a double sole, but also the flexibility of a single at the waist. All practical reasons, not so much aesthetic. The fiddled waist on the GG HAF sole is a nice extra touch. To each his own though...

Pictures say it all, from the owner, not mine. For what it is worth this guy is very knowledgeable. Blow the picture to read comments.

Spot on.

You guys keep talking about HAF or double, no one ever does single sole? I thought outside of Vass, double is usually used on boots and single was the most common option.
