To my eye some of these contrast soles are just too jarring. The cigars look perfect. The red bricks...I personally don't like

Is a "flex welt" aka "oiled flex leather" sole the same as a "waterloc" sole?

Is a "double waterloc" sole different from a waterloc sole?

I'm confused, because I've seen Leffot refer to a flex welt sole as a "double water-lock" sole (link), whereas Winn Perry has claimed a "double waterloc" sole is "a stacked version of the soles used in the construction of Alden's flex welt system" (link).

If there are single- and double-sole versions of the oiled flex leather sole, is the single-sole version still OK in the rain?

flex welt = water loc sole by a different name, it's just oiled leather. A double water lock is a double sole with the oiled leather, probably looks more rugged in most cases. Both are great for the rain, in fact the regular leather soles are fine for the rain too though some people prefer that they are worn in a bit in dry weather.

Thank you for the clarification!

Those look great; I love the plaza last too, though the barrie looks and fits great as well. I have three plaza last #8 shells on the way from J-gilbert in the plaza last...can't wait to see how they turn out.
