Crepe can wear out pretty quickly depending on thickness and the environment your walking in, so this may or may not be a big issue for some.
That's a pretty big turnoff for me too. It's pretty much the reason I haven't pulled the trigger on a pair yet. I like the idea of the leather wrap, but I don't think that is very functional. It will end up probably having to be resoled every couple months if wear them out a lot.
I love these so much:
I would have bought them by now if they could be resoled with the crepe, but they can't I don't think. Has anyone confirmed this with Arrow? I'm just going by what I've read here on the forum.
Anyone know who else makes a style like this that can be resoled? I don't know if Quoddy really has anything too close to that kind of plain moccasin.
On another note. While browsing rakuten, I spied these Arrows with a regular rubber shoe sole which I think are pretty cool. Check them out here:http://item.rakuten.co.jp/bigamerica...row-two-brown/
