I've emailed the seller and according to him it's the same fitting, but someone commented on a thicker inner sole here, any response to that?
I have had a pair of Blaxland in black since 1998, one thing is the rubber sole is so durable and LONG WEARING. I just want to let you know, its way better than the Craftsman leather sole, it has taken until NOW for the rubber sole to absorb water when it rains, my right sole has a slight hair line crack in it and the other day it was raining, i can feel the rain water entering and making my sock wet.
When comparing it to the Craftsmans leather sole, which i have also, when it wears down a little and things due to age, it will absorb rain water much quicker also, so with my leather Craftsmans i had a conversion done to a rubber sole to cure this issues.
I have Comfort Craftsmans also, my personal opinion is that its a little softer in the sole when comparing it to the Blaxlands rubber sole.
