I used to be on the fence with regard to commando soles.  I wish I had tried them sooner.

+1 on commando. I actually purchased this shoe and returned it. It is a beautiful shoe and extremely comfortable. It was just a little darker than I hoped. Additionally, I have had mixed results with the courtesy level of some Alden retailers but the folks at Unoinmade were hands-down the best of all that I've dealt with. FWIW.

A dark brown or burgundy commando sole would look awesome...

 

you can have any color you like, as long as it's black!

Very nice, brown CXL is probably my favorite for all-purpose wear.

 

How are the oiled flex soles on those?

Here's a comparison pic verus my ravello LWB (new stock)

 

Alex,

 

I am soo sorry, because those shoes look absolutely amazing! Any way you can put in like 5 heel pads and maybe a few tongue pads to pull it off? Because those shoes look like butter for the feet. Best of luck! At least you were able to get the Ravello LWBs! I normally do not like PTBs, but these Whiskeys some how spoke to me, and so I ordered it. I really hope that mine come in the correct size though! I double checked with Kathy though, so I think that I am good!

Don L looking good i really want to get #8 monks thanks to you now but its on lower part of my list too many things planned to buy.
post #64798 of 90111

Don L, nice monks. I wanted to get the #8 monks for a long time but decided that they just looked funny on me. I was also planning to change the brass buckle to a nickle buckle. I believe that Sky Vallet does a good job with that.

Is this the Unionmade/ Walnut LWB? I bought that shoe last week, specifically for the darker leather/ commando sole combination and more rugged look. I bought it as a casual show that goes with the more workwear-ish/ EG kind of stuff I like. Perfect shoe for casual jeans/ khakis - not sure if they would go as well with a more formal outfit.
