    If you don't mind me asking. Did you get this done at a local cobbler, and how much did it cost to have this done?

    Typically done by a local cobbler. My leather guy charges me around 30 bucks to do it.

    Could you post a side-shot? I'd like to see how this affects the aesthetics from the angle most people will see.

    Btw they look GREAT to me.

    If I'm not wrong I believe Wolverine would re-craft these if one desires. However if one gets something like this done localy would Wolverine still re-craft them if one wants to do that later on?

    Wolverine doesn't recraft these unless that's recently changed. I specifically discussed this with Wolverine corporate a while ago and the answer was no.

    That's a pretty tall sole...why not shave down the leather before doing the commando job?

    I put it against the Beckman for comparison:

    Not the best pic, but hope it gives you an idea...

    Great picture! Really shows the difference in toe box between the two.

    What color are these? Brown? If one of you guys own this pair they are stunning!

    Those look awesome. Thanks for doing, and thanks for posting. I now want to do the same, and i'm curious -- i've been wearing my new W1Ks for about a month so my leather sole is pretty scuffed, that shouldn't be a problem should it?

    That commando half sole is just awesome. Need that on my 1k"s badly - the leather slips on wet surfaces sometimes - not a real confidence booster when riding to work. Love the way it makes the boot look, too.
