Beautifully done!! Is it done by clobber in Taiwan?

 

Crepe sole is very comfortable for me but I only have one. How it wear out is what makes me avoid getting more...

Love it - that is great - I happen to like the crepe on mine but do not see them lasting long...I am thinking of going to Dainite Logger for mine - I have corded on a pair of Bergs...great sole

Yes, it was done by Mr. Lin at Dr. Sole. It took quite a while as he's pretty backed up with work. Plus I think his core business is actually selling the soles, rather than doing the re-soles.

Thanks! Yeah, it definitely didn't help that the crepe wore out fairly quickly. I'm a big fan of the corded soles. They give the boots a really solid feel (although some folks complain that they're too heavy). I think Dainite Logger would be pretty cool. Definitely post pics if/when you get them.

Pretty darn nice beater. Good choice.. I like the simplicity of black shell.

Thanks chipster and dubster.  Really happy with these; great to see that shell stands up nicely to various types of weather.  No longer gonna baby them ( at least not the darker shells I own :D).

Thanks, I agree with you. They would have been more bling with antique, but they are great regardless. Took, me too long to wear them out...

I like the darker welt on this makeup. Antique is great for casual wear. This is a little more versatile .. Great boot Mike!

I agree. I like the dark welt on this makeup. The Ravello loafers are the ones that benefit from the antique edge color.

In fact, I would like to see some captoe boots in Ravello with dark edges!

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ I am pretty sure everyone in the adjacent hotel rooms heard my loud "Hah!" just now. Well played dude.

Anybody hear any news about Yenni's Reverse chamois boots?
post #1678 of 11793

Last I heard.  Barrie, Wingtip, brown eyes/hooks, antique welt, commando.  End of Feb ETA.

What's everyone's choice for the heartiest weather-resistant leather that Alden sources? Kudu? Reverse chamois? CXL? I need to get something to relieve my AE Long Branch of heavy duty.

The AoSF rugged Indy boot has a fully lugged sole, it looks like from their web site. Does anyone know if it's that killer, bullet proof Vibram lug or the squishier Vibram gumlight lugs?
