only the right pair is a spade sole. The left is perfect, even by today's standards (I'd personally prefer the spades, though).
In fact, I'd venture to guess that Fritzl would say they are even better than the Dover, considering the stitch on the blucher leather seems to be the same as the stitch down the vamp... which has been one of his pet-peeves regarding the Dover and it's many stitch types.
