I prefer commando soles on my boots as opposed to the double leather. It just seems much more functional to me. And I am not one to baby my shell (or any material for that matter) and will commonly wear my "good" shoes to work or to walk to the store even when there is snow and ice on the ground or in the pouring rain. Wearing leather soled shoes to walk around outside in the winter in Michigan is asking for trouble.

Just got my 2nd & 3rd pair of Aldens! Couldn't be happier!

I have them both. If I were forced to choose I think I would pick the Ravello. The cigar cap toe from AofDC is pretty damn nice though.

Good choices - these were my first 2 pairs of Aldens, both are very versatile and have gotten a lot of use!

I picked up the cigar from DC for essentially the same reason - they had my size. That said, I couldn't be more pleased with them.

I think I'll be waiting quite a while for ravello cap toe boot in my size.

Just got the leffot tankers with commando soul. It is perfect! I live in Canada, so there is always some snow and ice on the ground. The commando sole handles it like a boss. Any Alden boots I buy will definitely have the commando sole from here on out.

^ Keep in mind that if there is a make up that you're interested in without a commando sole, you can have the boot resoled at a reputable cobbler. (Many on SF, especially B. Nelson, will do mail order if you prefer.)

If anyone is looking for Cigar Indys, I posted a pair in size 8E on eBay:

They are on a crepe sole and are extremely comfortable. I had that same question and was told to beat the HELL out of them and they will age just FINE !! Wipe down

is all they need.

I just received phone confirmation that my 9.5e 44621 Alden Ravello Wingtips shipped from Shoemart. When I browse their site right now I can also see that they have lots of Ravello sizes in stock in that boot and you can add them to your shopping cart...so it seems like they have a shipment in with some that are not spoken for. Happy hunting. nod[1].gif
