    Have the crepe on my Roy boots and on a pair of shell Indys. I think they work well on boots and the comfort is unmatched. I'd probably pass on them on a blucher as well.

    edit: Love that #8 Ranger Moc on the crepe ...the suede chukka from J Crew too. OK, I like the crepe

    nephew,
    if my thinking is correct the leydon last and the plaza last are similar; therefore, the 10.5 D should work for you. did you bounce this question on tom

    I have the crepe sole on a couple pair of longwings, a pair of NST All Weather Walkers, and I am on the Context preorder for a pair of the Roy boots on the crepe. They are hands down the most comfortable soles I have on any shoes or boots I have ever worn. In fact, I wore my kudu longwings on the crepe on a 7 mile walk this morning and wouldn't hesitate to put them on to do the walk again. They are also extremely sticky on tile and pavement during inclement weather.

    I don't go out of my way to find shoes on the crepe sole but I have a feeling that a lot of the people who seem to hate them so much have never actually tried them.

    Crepe soles are awesome, after a heavy squat session they feel like heaven

    Sherman Bros is having a 15% Alden sale right now. It might be for in store only tough. I live ten minutes from their Haverford location. Their selection is pretty limited, but if you are in the market for the basics this is a definite deal.

    They're on crepe sole though.

    Whoever is spec'ing out Unionmade Aldens has an unhealthy obsession with that loden green and crepe soles.
