10 or 10.5?

Here's my data:

Sperry = 14
Quoddy = 13.5
Clarks DB = 13
Indy = 13
Roy (Barrie) = 13

The Roys might be a touch big, but they are perfectly comfortable laced tightly.

If I have to take a guess...450ish? You can email them, and ask.

Leather Soul ones have a double leather sole.
Leffot ones have a commando sole.

The double leather sole is a flat dress sole - the same one that they use on the Alden Longwings.

The Commando sole is a combination leather & rubber sole with tread on the bottom.

Both of them have their advantages. The double leather sole can be more easily dressed up. The Commando sole is better in rain or snow, and look more casual.

And man, I love the 403 too! Just put in an order to get those in February.

Double leather sole is just a regular leather sole, only thicker.
It's thick and clunky and takes quite a while to break in.

Commando sole is a leather sole but with a treaded sole too.
Commando sole is more casual looking but you don't kill yourself in the wet.
Most Alden of Carmel shoes are commando.

There's also the flex welt sole. It's a oil treated leather sole which is fairly thin. Its advantage is that it's quite comfortable. Plus it looks good.
See the unlined chukkas.

sweet thanks guys ...

im thinking of investing in the whiskey indys but cant decide if i want it with a commando sole or if it looks better with the double soul like leathersoulhawaii

http://www.leathersoulhawaii.com/200...boot/#comments

dont you guys think whiskey (since the color makes it seem dressier) would look weird with commando sole?

Those Whiskey Indys from LS are sold out. And to answer your question, definitely go with the double leather sole.
