Regarding the MTO Alt Wein boot:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
0. Color 8 !
1. All eyelets, no speed hooks
2. Dark edge trim (dressier)
3. double leather sole, with double water-loc as 2nd choice.
4. Alden of DC
Let's get it on !
I agree with all of these
Plaza? Close heel and flat welt?

Flat Head or Iron Heart jeans?
Regardless ... the double cuff works with that straight fit and the "work" boot.
Between Double oak leather, double waterlock,commando and Crepe(not double but similar in size) which one do you consider the more comfortable ?
I know single waterlock is very light and comfortable but haven't tried the double.
Also between single waterlock and Crepe for all day wearing but not a lot of walking?.
double waterlock is probably my favorite for combination of comfort and weight
The commando sole is surprisingly low profile. I have one pair of color 8 SWB on commando for days with dressier demands but wintery or wet ground conditions. Be forewarned though...
commando soles + rainy day + marble floors = accident waiting to happen! (according to Uncle)
i would agree with the commando sole... very low profile.... almost stealth like :)
i love them on some Indy boots i have in winter conditions, but i don't typically walk on marble so not sure about slipping there.... ha!
