Wouldn't that depend more on the shape of the last and the quality of the upper, instead of the construction used?
hmmm ok so, understand both sides because
- I love the feeling of wearing good quality shoes, they look very nice and look the part with a nice suit, but
- need to make accommodation for my hammer toes, which just can't do the whole leather soled thing that well... very painful
My compromise is RM Williams - great quality, looks rough and ready which I like even if its in the boardroom, and is more comfortable for me
The most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever worn though, is............... Diesel.... pair of sneakers I had in Uni... eventually wore the toe through, but remember them fondly
Shamefully, I get rotate my RMs with a pair of Hush puppies - the ones with the 'bounce' sole... its wide (EEE) and doesnt hurt my hammer toes, and for like a hundred bucks, they last ok especially when rotated... difference in quality is very obvious though - the hush puppies soles tend to crack after a while...
