Yes it was. You're a similarly big footed fellow aren't you? I'll let you guys know if they don't work out for me.

Guys,
I'm considering adding a color 8 shell lace up boot to my collection. I'm debating between a plain toe with a commando sole or a captor with a leather sole. Which would you all suggest? This will be for more casual wear and also would like to use for riding my motorcycle. I'm leaning towards the plain toe commando version. Pics of either of these models is appreciated. Thanks

Thanks.

I have 2 pairs with Commando sole. Fantastic. Low profile, but durable and rugged.

Not sure how cordovan is going to hold up to shifting...but I would to with captoe for a little extra leather there.

I believe CDI is an orthopedic last, not an Asian focused last.

there was a Cigar Shell LHS in CDI in my size but my brief googling said it basically requires a footbed/some sort of aftermarket adjustment

Exactly. Those things are awful.
