The fiddleback (some of us believe it has real structrual value) is made unnecessary by the added soles. However the suede derby above is not to my mind a "true" country shoe. Though, I am sure, most here would think it not a city shoe either. I gues that is a long way of saying that I agree with your point, fritzl, that it makes the shoe a little less of a country shoe.
But still very nice and something I would definitely wear.
