i like the laces Tom, but only for some occasions. my friend here with me, on the other hand, says "hell no." but what does he know? lol http://www.aldenshop.com/ has 405s in lots of sizes. they even have the ones with the cotton duck lining edit - the guy asked for 403s and i send a link to 405s. sorry i misread that.
I have a few alden boots with double leather sole's that get really slippery on tile floors, even with the 1/2 rubber heel. My question is, has anyone applied 'oil" to their soles in order to make them slightly more weather reisitant & also less slippery?
