Delivery time is three months so we're looking at mid-April for this one.

So, is it too late to change the width on the adelaide mto?

I have to check, I would think it's too late. Also, I think they enforce the same policy as G&G and EG that all the ordered models has to be in the same width. I'll have to get back to you.

How come these have a Ridgeway sole instead of a Commando sole?

The Commando was a thin rubber sole stitched + glued to a leather midsole. What happened after a few wears was that the rubber got a little frayed in the toe are. Although this does not look very nice it does not affect the function of the boot and the fraying wears away quite quickly. But we put in a considerable amount of time explaining this so in the end we decided for a full heavy duty rubber sole like the Ridgeway. So the reason is purely pragmatic.

Oh, forgot to let you know, this has also been restocked. Probably one of my personal Carmina favorites at the moment. And I'm happy we got a restock given the situation with Shell shortage.
