one problem (if you wear wider sizes especially) is that the raised commando treads are too far inward from the edge sometimes, so the stitching hits the ground, which it shouldn't - at least not while the treads/'teeth' are still brand new
- but it's a problem only in one of my three half-commando pairs
I wear 13D and I think what you're saying is correct. I have no issues with any other leather sole versions wearing like this. Only commando.
