    Hmm I seem to remember seeing some cigar Grant captoe boots with a leather or waterloc sole at some point. Ring any bells with any of you internet bigtimers?

    The Grant last is very nice. An under-used last by Alden stockists, I think. The BB LWBs on the Grant look so much better than Barrie longwings.

    There was a LS grant captoe in calf a while ago.

    Totally agree about the Grant LWBs looking nicer.

    Hmm, could have sworn that Grant flex captoe came in cigar... I seem to remember Uncle Mac having this boot. One could always get the commando sole resoled, I suppose. Thank you for the link.

    Sleeker Alden lasts are harder to fit, but if you know your size and they fit your foot, they are magnificent.

    On an unrelated note, I'm visiting your fair city yesterday/today. Not sure I have ever experienced nicer weather in Seattle. Get out and enjoy! Hope to stop by Insurrection before my flight this afternoon.

    BTW - I hate the Grant last (which is why choices are nice, even if they create complexity & confusion)

    ^ Everyone has their opinion on lasts. I dislike the Plaza intensely (both for fit and looks). Everyone else seems to love it... To each their own!
