    That is very true. They look much better on double sole.

    I think you guys are right and I will go with the double sole. Thanks for the quick response!

    That's crazy but I am sure they would sell you one now. It's worth asking directly from the dealer.

    Yes, Goyser for double sole. You can also tell them to use a natural welt/stiching colour (or some other). But for your model, I wouldnt do so.

    Great shoot for your first Vass!!

    these look like p2 indeed. P2 does have a similar shape to alden barrie but with far fewer creases. on my feet, p2 f width feels alot like barrie c width (the ideal fit people with normal width feet)

    P2 is a good deal more sleek than Alden Barrie, IMO.

    First outing of these bad boys today. While the suede isn't the bright white I had hoped for, it still looks white in the direct sunlight. I'd say the colour is more of an off-white grey. Love them though.

    ^ +1 P2 looks more sleek than Alden Barrie and works really well for casual shoes / boots

    I must admit I've never been a fan of the Alden Barrie, but I do love the P2. Its chunky without being too "blobby" and shapeless like Barrie.

    It's true that they'll get dirty pretty quickly, but its no fun to own shoes you dont regularly wear. I'm just careful about scuffing them and where I wear them.
