    Outstanding! I had convinced myself I didn't need them. I have similar boots, but wow are these nice.

    Lovely. Missed out recently on the pair Spoo sold on EBay. Second place, first loser. :-( Wear in good health.

    Is there a way to get a 4065 style (so basically a pair of black shell cap toe boots) with full eyelets AND commando sole - every last considered?


    Because on AoC, there is only one model with hooks and commando sole
    and on theshoemart the full eyelet version but with double leather soles though

    Thanks!

    I haven't seen one, but it sounds like a good makeup. I have the 4065 and I like it just the way it is. Maybe get the 4065 and have a commando put on or wait till the first resole?

    thanks! I got the soles and eyelets done at Pioneer Renewers in San Francisco. I honestly can't remember how much it cost - it was over a year ago. I thought it was quite reasonable at the time.

    Yeah I thought about that. The problem is that I don't live in the US (Europe) so it would be difficult for me to send the pair back just for a sole. And I don't think I could find a cobbler able to put that kind of sole easily.

    Actually I don't have any preference for eyelets over speed hooks. It's just that I heard some people here saying it could cause damage to hems.

    Yeah, looks like you're a C.

    I vote for my town, SFO. It is a company store so they have a wide variety of sizes. The service is excellent. Also winter weather-wise nothing will beat the city by the bay.
