    "Unlined" typically refers only to the tongue and the toe-box.

    I was under the impression that flex = waterloc. Is this incorrect?

    Double flex = waterloc.
    What is a Double Leather 'Waterloc' or 'Double Waterloc' sole? Here's three descriptions:


    "instead of the standard double leather sole, we used an oiled version, called a 'Double Waterloc' that will resist the harmful effects of Portland’s wet climate. The heavily oiled sole is a stacked version of the soles used in the construction of Alden’s flex welt system." http://winnperry.com/updates/alden-winn-perry/

    "...these boots are made Portland friendly through the use of Alden's double waterlock oiled leather sole" http://shop.winnperry.com/products/a...ck-captoe-boot

    "...the signature Double Waterlock oiled leather sole pairs with the rest of the boot handsomely and increases the lifespan of your leather sole on wet surfaces." http://shop.winnperry.com/products/a...ck-captoe-boot

    "...This shoe is made Portland friendly through the use of Alden's double waterlock oiled leather sole. The oiled double leather sole does not allow water to penetrate into its pores, a cause for premature aging of leather soles. The addition of the double waterlock makes this American classic that much more versatile in the Pacific NW." http://shop.winnperry.com/products/a...rlock-longwing

    That is correct Chris.

    Nice! Thanks to you both for the clarification. So is the flex welt, then, a single-oiled waterloc sole? Or is the single flex welt not oiled?

    I emailed Tom at LS about a month or so back to see if there would be another unlined PTB offered, and he said possibly sometime soon. I would email him and ask.
