My new pair of EG Olneys on the 606 last in dark oak antique finally arrived on Friday, and as I was examining them, I noticed something that I haven't seen before: they have double soles, but the midsole begins to taper just aft of the ball of the foot and disappears completely near the waist of the shoe. Here's a picture of the taper: Aside from making the shoe slimmer at the waist, does anyone have any idea why this would be done? Doe it have a name? I'll crosspost this over on the Ask Andy forum when it's available again in the hopes that Tony Gaziano happens by. Seriously, Andy, you need to dump those losers at XO Communications.
