    You might like the Vanguard boot, then. I don't know if/when it's coming back. You could email LS and see, though. Very slightly different since this has brass eyelets and speed hooks, though.

    chakmak, if you need more data points on the AF53s from Alden of Carmel, here's my pair at about five years. As beautiful as the Jumpers are, I prefer a commando sole on rugged boots. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Will be my 2nd pair of Aldens, after my Suede 904 wingtips (or is it shortwings around here?)

    They'll be the most expensive shoes/boots I have ever purchased :drool:
