I went the same route with B.Nelson using JR double soles/dainite on my 1273S suede Barrie chukkas with commando sole. I used a natural rather than antique welt, but as I've worn them it's been darkening properly (as originally photographed the contrast was a bit strong -- they look great in person though!)

Thanks! I was unsure how much I would dig the strap before it arrived, but I'm absolutely wild about it. And I love LWB. So comfortable.

This boot is areal bummer for me. Love the top part of the boot and hate the edge treatment..... I just don't get this. I would buy the boot to wear with a suit in winter but......

Now I am sure my size will sell out before I make up my mind. Ideas???

Clearly you don't love it and as such shouldn't but it. Perhaps the J Crew version would be a better fit for you?

J Crew pct boot does it for me much more than this boot, hands-down.  But that's just me...
