    for what it's worth, and as someone else said - the black captoe with commando sole was too militaristic for my liking. i was comparing the black captoe on barrie with double leather from Alden SF with the black captoe on grant with commando from Alden DC.. went with the double leather version. i do like the commando sole on my #8 plazas from j gilbert however.


    also,from a few pages back, i can barely justify having the same style shoe in different leather/color, i have no idea how you guys can make the leap to having 2 pair of lwb in the same leather/color with only very minor differences. :stirpot:

    Short answer: Much easier to wear in inclement weather.

    Longer Answer: Where I live it snows regularly and is wet much of the winter. Leather soles, of course, can be protected with overshoes. And I wear overshoes to and from work and during the workday as needed. I have no problem with that. However, if, for example, I am heading out for an evening with my wife, or a school sporting event for a child, or a trip to the shopping mall, etc., I don't like to wear overshoes. Commando soles (or waterloc) work great for such events. And while the commando does dress down a boot somewhat, that is fine with me as my boots are mostly worn for casual to business casual settings.
