Does anyone have an opinion/preference on the lower profile vibram soles, 269 vs. 430 vs. 700? Is one more comfortable? Are they all the same thickness? Does one have better traction?
Also, the build-a-boot site was a bit confusing with respect to the half slip. I think a half slip means that the vibram sole runs through the entire boot, from the toe all the way through to the back of the heel, but this seems counterintuitive as I would think this would be called a full slip? Does this boot (not mine) have a half slip? Are there any advantages or disadvantages to having the vibram sole run through the heel?
