Moulded Shoe has a natural CXL Indy boot. It's on the Modified last. I'm not sure they have any widths other than D, though.
luckily the receptionist has zero impact on whether or not you get hired. Impress the decision makers.
Not necessary in my opinion. It will be slippery only at first, until the bottoms of the soles get scuffed up from walking outside. Wet wether however does soften up the leather sole and make it wear down much faster, so you might still consider getting them toppy'd for that reason if you plan on walking on wet pavement with them.
Edit: Yes, it would be slippery on wet marble, but aren't all shoes?
I'm sorry if you misunderstood, the marble inside of Grand Central wasn't wet. My shoes were wet from the rain outside of the station.
Now with the vibram sole protector, the shoes slip no more.

You might want to rethink that theory. I know first hand of employers who will ask reception folks about the behavior of potential employees who were waiting in the lobby before interviews.
