Sorry, they're Flat Head. ;)

How do guys rate Alden double soles in comfort and weight?

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?.

Thanks.

out of the box comfort:

single waterlock
crepe
double waterlock
commando
Double leather

weight:

single waterlock
double waterlock
double leather
commando
crepe

single waterlock is best for all day comfort however can become uncomfortable after a couple of miles of walking

spot on

 

double waterlock is probably my favorite for combination of comfort and weight

commando soles + rainy day + marble floors = accident waiting to happen!  (according to Uncle)  smile.gif

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!

Single waterlock models tend to feel the best "out of the box" and are great if you are not walking much

If there is going to be a lot of walking in the day, "double waterlock" or double leather provide a lot of support. Crepe is probably best for all day walking, commando is best for all condition walking.

3. double leather sole, with double water-loc as 2nd choice.
4. Alden of DC

Let's get it on !

Last time I was in Alden DC, Kathy mentioned that she can only submit new styles twice a year. I recall that September was one of the months when she would submit her new proposed styles. We may want to get this going to get into that window.

The double leather soles on Alden's shoes are excellent. I especially like the double water-lock soles on my Ravello LWB's, they're super comfortable and really tuff.

Uncle, I've never seen an Indy look so rich and stylish. Are they on the tru-balance last? Very nice boots sir.
