I'm looking into a pair of Alden Indy boots and deciding which type of sole I want. I'm not a fan of the Neoprene sole, so I'm looking into one with lugs in it.
The Kudu 404 has a Vibram sole on the bottom which fits in theory, but I've heard that the sole is simply glued whereas a Commando sole is welted on. Does that mean I can only resole using another Vibram sole? Or can I replace the sole with anything I choose? Also are there advantages to one over the other?
anyone interested in a brand new indy color 8 size 9 1/2 ? never worn, tried on twice. purchased 3 weeks ago from the madison ave shop. as i pre-ordered the shortwing from ls, thinking i might rather have the cigar indy... thanks rkd for the tip! pm if your interested
