Bumping this thread hoping someone has a pic of said "low-profile commando sole"...

Thanks for the quick reply, so from what I understand Nick's commando sole is similar to the boots in the second video correct?

I figured if I was going to spend the money to resole them, I might as well spend a couple extra bucks to make them rainy day shoes and have them last longer than standard leather or JR soles. Nick did a great job releveling the insole for me so the previous owner's imprint was mostly gone. After a couple of wears out in town, I can feel my new imprint in the shoe, and it is super comfortable to wear. Even in wet conditions, I've had no issue with slipping with the Dainite soles, and they feel similar to leather soles in terms of comfort. Nothing but praise for B. Nelson!

Would love to see pics!

I don't know for sure but likely that is true.

So one of the straps on a pair of double monks I own completely broke the other day. Has anybody had any luck getting this repaired?
