Also the training boots are pretty narrow. I had to get them widened to be comfortable. Now that they've broken in they're pretty nice. The straps are flimsy by the way, I broke one when I went bowling and put them back on drunk
I think the leather on those is the same as my GellerxCPs, but that's just making an assumption from pictures on the internet. Even if my RGxCPs aren't the same as yours, I am almost positive they are the same leather as the shell toes people have been complaining about.
I like it fine, but I am not really picky about softness or "quality" of leather on shoes beyond a certain point, especially when its treated to look a certain way
Anyway, these ones are really stiff
Are your training boots the first ones that came out with the really soft leather or from the following year that are really stiff? Mine were stiff, wore them for a good while but finally decided they were too tight. I had worn them out to shows and driving around and stuff and they fit okay but when I tried actually using them for a decent amount of walking and I got wicked blisters on my heels and the tops of my toes within just a few blocks. Later I tried a 41, they ended up being the softer floppy leather and they just felt goofy, too long.

making me have second thoughts argh. Officer boots look good too but would probably benefit from looser/wider hem pants (the ankle gap in your fit is just too prominent for my taste). I personally preferred the older heeled version to this creeper sole but hey, if they're useful in your wardrobe, I say keep em. What's the leather quality like btw in comparison to the sneakers?
They'd probably be better with looser pants, but that won't likely happen. I will survive by attempting to balance it out by wearing big coats
I like the old silhouette too, but I pretty much have that covered with the Geller collab, and I need something with a non leather sole.
As for the leather, see above, but if I had to guess I would say this is the same material as the Training boots I had. Its much stiffer than what Achilles and such are made out of.
