    I find the double leather soles quite comfortable on concrete...

    How does that hold up in snow or wet slush?

    Just got mine in today. I'd say they fit true to size if anyone needed another reference. The quality is very good for the price too; it makes me want to buy another pair.

    7 in Chuck Taylors, 8 in Nike Dunks, 39 in YSL Rolling Sneakers

    Hard for me to say as I live in Los Angeles!

    That said, I don't see these as the first shoe I'd reach for if it was snowing outside.

    Russell Moccasins on the other hand....

    Just ordered some of these:

    This color isn't something they sell a lot of, and they actually hand dye the hides in shop to get the color. He was surprised I lived in the US and wanted to order shoes I've seen on a Japanese site.

    Hopefully will have them around Christmas, but might be longer if he has to hunt for a cleaner hide.

    130 for shoes they cut, sew and dye by hand is crazy cheap.

    I hope that'll darken to look like this: [​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG] Found it here, but even with google translate, I had no idea what leather they used.

    Just got my ring boots in today. Amazing quality, double soles are pretty comfy and I imagine will only get comfier with each wear. I tried to contact the Arrow people to see if they could have had put a crepe sole on but they are hard to get a hold of. They call you, you don't call them.

    you can get crepes, i have mine with crepe sole. only problem is they can't resole, but that's not to say another cobbler won't try. the issue is destroying the upper when you remove the crepe sole

    ^ Thanks for the info. So perhaps I was better off not getting the crepe, but the crepe just makes it look that much better. Do you use any product on your mocs?
