I'm debating between an AE and Alden shoe and in either case I will ant a mini lugged "commando" style sole. To those with experience with both, is there any significant difference between the commando sole used by Alden and what AE calls the mini lug sole but appears to be basically the same thing? I'm not asking about tread pattern, but more if one or the other is much stiffer, or durable, or manufactured from a material that offers better traction, etc. Thanks!
