^ We don't have inventory of the commando soles we want to use yet. As soon as we sample a pair, i'll sneak peak you with a photo =)

Guys if you really want the trench boot with a commando sole just buy it and get it re-soled for $50.

I'd wear out the first sole before getting it resoled--why unnecessarily shorten the life of a brand-new boot?

Adding a commando sole to the leather sole won't shorten the life of anything.

I meant having it resoled completely, not having rubber added on.

Do you know of anywhere that can do a really competent job at this in the Los Angeles or Chicago area?

How do you guys rock the laces on your trench boots? Uncut, not laced through the top eyelet, and wrapped around once? Or do you trim them? If you do trim them, how much so? This is my first pair of quality work boots and want the correct fit.


Also, was wondering what these bad boys look like broken in so far! Just curious as to how my boots will look in the future with proper conditioning!

Been wearing them 2-3 times a week since they were released.

I cut the laces, didn't like the rubbing I felt on the ankles. I don't lace up the top eyelet.

Any other new photos of how these boots have broken in?

Also, what are recommendations on sizing?  Have people gone a half size down for other OSB styles?  I'm a 8.5 E.  Should I order 8 or 8.5?  The CXL should stretch enough for the width, right?

I have the black trench boot for sale in the marketplace.

if anyone is interested, i have a pair of the captoe vibram-soled trench boots in 10D that i'm going to send back to oak street to exchange for a 10.5D. if you want a pair of the captoe vibrams in 10D and don't want to wait 5-6 weeks for them to come off backorder, let me know soon, otherwise i'm boxing them up and sending them back to oak street. (brand-new condition, obviously. tried on briefly while sitting in a chair, didn't even step down on them. no creases or wear or anything. didn't even lace them up)
