After a pair of black combat boots that aren't too exp and decided on docs (any other suggestions?), was about to get a pair of 1490s online the other day, and only hesistated as i don't really like the contrasting yellow stitching or the semi-transparent sole too much (though i could live it with).
Then i came across the 8267 on another site which, to my eye, look the same just with nappa leather which i think looks nicer and, more importantly, black stitching & sole!
Now my (possibly stupid) questions are, is there a difference between the normal semi-transparent sole & this black one?
The only difference i've been able to find is the normal is a "DMS Sole" whilst the black is a "HUD Sole", although it makes no sense to me.
Also the toe area "looks" chunkier than the 1490s. Is this the case or is it just the images?
I'd check it out myself but there's only one local store i can find that sell 1490s & they don't have the 8267s.
