It's seems extremely apropos that we Americans have adopted the caduceus as the medical symbol, instead of the rod of Asclepius. My wife is a doctor and has a caduceus tattoo! Those shoes are fantastic mw313.

Thank you! Agreed, I'm wearing them much more often and comfortably with this more forgiving sole. smile.gif

Thank you for this question, it gave me a reason to go back and watch the St.C "whole process" video which shows that there is still some pegging at the wait before the sole is added and repegged. I will say that original leather sole has been completly removed and replaced with the rubber/plastic. I'm sure there is some gluing involved in the process.

It honestly feels as supple and soft as INC and RUS leathers that I have. It may look more course because of the patter but it is breaking in excellently and is very comfortabl!

I don't feel weird saying those side lacers are sexy, not one bit. Those are glorious

I had the very great pleasure of meeting Zach Jobe yesterday at the St Crispin's trunk show in San Francisco. I succumbed and ordered a pair of Chukkas, the 524 model, I believe, with some modifications to the standard last, in a sort of mid-brown Kudu, leather sole with a Vibram overlay. This is my first foray into St Crispin's world.
