    Beautifully done!! Is it done by clobber in Taiwan?

    Crepe sole is very comfortable for me but I only have one. How it wear out is what makes me avoid getting more...

    Love it - that is great - I happen to like the crepe on mine but do not see them lasting long...I am thinking of going to Dainite Logger for mine - I have corded on a pair of Bergs...great sole

    Thank you, sir.



    Yes, it was done by Mr. Lin at Dr. Sole. It took quite a while as he's pretty backed up with work. Plus I think his core business is actually selling the soles, rather than doing the re-soles.



    Thanks! Yeah, it definitely didn't help that the crepe wore out fairly quickly. I'm a big fan of the corded soles. They give the boots a really solid feel (although some folks complain that they're too heavy). I think Dainite Logger would be pretty cool. Definitely post pics if/when you get them.

    Thanks chipster and dubster. Really happy with these; great to see that shell stands up nicely to various types of weather. No longer gonna baby them ( at least not the darker shells I own [​IMG]).

    The color on those Ravello chukkas is money! Well done pal.

    Thanks, I agree with you. They would have been more bling with antique, but they are great regardless. Took, me too long to wear them out...

    I like the darker welt on this makeup. Antique is great for casual wear. This is a little more versatile .. Great boot Mike!

    I agree. I like the dark welt on this makeup. The Ravello loafers are the ones that benefit from the antique edge color.

    In fact, I would like to see some captoe boots in Ravello with dark edges!

    What's everyone's choice for the heartiest weather-resistant leather that Alden sources? Kudu? Reverse chamois? CXL? I need to get something to relieve my AE Long Branch of heavy duty.

    The AoSF rugged Indy boot has a fully lugged sole, it looks like from their web site. Does anyone know if it's that killer, bullet proof Vibram lug or the squishier Vibram gumlight lugs?
