DWFII, of course your seal of approval is ALWAYS much appreciated. I committed the cardinal sin on these... they left me before I took a proper and FULL set of pics. However, they are the traditional Clapp 30's closed channel sole... much like these...

yes,
old stitch still left,
but it big problem.
lt double sole shoe and mid sole need come off to pick old stitch.
lt mean big rebuild.
Many cobbler not use original last and shape change if man pick out old stitch because he need to restitch mid and bottom sole.
Man should send back to factory to do job proper. .
