I like the Commando sole on boots, just the right combo of traction, comfort and looks. It seems like there has been a commando on everything trend, and some things lend themselves to other soles, but for a boot Commando is much, much better than Dainite or other rubber soles, IMHO.

I used to hate commando, but I agree on boots it's a great sole for wear and city walking.

On dress boots or other makeups I much prefer leather, but I'll give commando the edge for casual makeups :)

just catching up here - so Matt has stolen the AoM shipment of those blue suede boots, dyed them black, and absconded to Pakistan where he's selling them at a deep loss? Does Jim realize his partner has gone off the deep end??

Hey folks,

Long-time lurker (3ish years?) here who is finally getting to the point where the Alden collection is resembling enough of an addiction to where posting seems like a necessity. I'm posted up in Chicago for the next month working on a graduate thesis and could only bring two pairs (the horror), my factory second unlined BB LHS in #8 and these bad boys, new 664s which I got hooked up with from Gentlemen's Footwear last month. Looking forward to joining the discussion – have always loved following along here!

p.s.: how's my Matt step?
