I just picked up some pebble grain Dainite sole chukkas but would still consider some in suede, especially if they're 3-eyelet. How do you feel about the York or Tomir sole for a slightly lighter shoe? Also, @watchidiot is heading up some efforts in this direction, so I'd reach out to him.
I'm really interested in tobacco suede and would prefer that to polo, I think.
What about Victory soles? They are low-profile and hard wearing; great balance. I think tobacco would look great.
You prefer 3 eyelets over the 5 eyelet (model 905) ?
