I'm interested in a pair of Arrow Moccasins and I was wondering if anyone around here might have some experience with these or know anything about them. I'm thinking about going with the Two-Eye Moc. Check it out here:

They only have a one bad pic on the website though so it's hard to get a feel for them. Anyone have these or know where I could get a better picture of them? Anyone know how durable and comfortable the double wrap sole would be on these?

I was considering these... but then I realized they have leather bottoms, so that wouldn't really work for concrete. Apparently you can have them put on a crepe sole but you'd have to ask..

i'm wearing my ring boots right now. i wear them a few times a week to work and always around my place; the double leather sole is holding up just fine. it took me two years to wear out a pair of minnetonka's with much thinner leather. i imagine these will last three to four years before needing a resole.

quality is top notch and turn around time for me was just a couple weeks.

Where is the pic from? If the crepe is thick like that, I'd love a pair.

I may be copying you very shortyly. Just gotta decide if I want the 3 eye or 2 eye. The 2 eye seems a little more versatile imo.

Where'd you find these? Do they make them in brown leather?

I ordered a pair of two-eyelet mocs today with crepe soles. Same price as double leather. Aside from the wait, the only hesitation is that crepe cannot be resoled. I asked if they could do any other soles, hoping for a camp sole, and the response was, "no, that would make it a shoe, and we're not interested in those." I can't wait!
