    You're moving in the right direction.

    What so you guys think of this ? Reasonably sleek, sole is not too bulky, plus heel

    Not bad at all. Who makes those? If you don't mind me asking.

    For urban city walking...I have found the commando sole to be uncomfortable

    But I noticed some of the boots pictured earlier had crepe soles...I suggest you take the sole design into your decision making process. Good luck

    Anything with a heel will get a thumbs up from you ...[​IMG]

    Hudson or something like that, they are at Asos

    Came across another pic of the BC one and this time it doesnt look as good as before, maybe because of the diff angle of the pic

    My understanding of crepe soles were the ones on the Clarks DBs. The soles on the Diemme and Fracap should be different material but I could be wrong.

    The first rule is the most important one. I think you get it now.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions, I appreciate it.

    Sadly none of them are what I am looking for. Honestly all of them look like regular boots rather than hiking boots.


    Have you looked at the Frye Rogan model? I just stole a pair at the Sundance catalog/outlet store in Salt Lake--they retail for $300 and these were $69 in 8.5. Maybe they are on sale in the catalog if you like them or call the store?

    ^^ Thanks for the suggestions but all the ones above and Paraboot are too SWD for my taste. The best I have come across are either the Frye Rogan above or this Hudson. The only problem I see with this Hudson is that the sole looks a tad insubstantial ... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I think the hudson boots are better looking than the frye boots but the sole of the hudson does look a little insubstantial. Does anyone know about this type of sole design?

    not my pic

    I'm still waiting for these as they were out of stock when I placed the order @ Pediwear (they said 6 to 8 weeks).

    Yeah, I'm still waiting for mine. Ordered them back in november from pediwear and was told they'd get a restock in January. Now I get a new email saying they won't be getting them until March earliest. [​IMG]

    Not pediwear's fault of course, just disappointing.
