I asked Moulded Shoe about this. they told me
"We can apply Alden's commando soles & a vibram coordinating heel with a low profile mini lug.
I have attached a photo for you.
With the rubber stitched, this would be a complete sole replacement. It would take about 4 weeks and cost $150.00.
Without stitching the rubber can be applied onto the existing leather sole this would take 1 week and cost $75.00."
would be nice to save the $75 and 3 weeks (and keep the original soles), question if would this be way too thick of a sole?
edit: they say the cemented on option would be thin, and actually recommend this is if the original leather sole is in good shapeEdited by makewayhomer - 10/31/11 at 9:45am
