    Use neutral or tan. Or skip it all together.

    On this Wolverine pic from his website, which boot is the cap-toe one in the middle?
    Not the Cordovan, is it? The Rockford?

    I really like the half commando sole on my Beckman, therefore I added commando half sole to my new W1K, as well as to the heel to balance it out.

    In my opinion, the commando half sole makes the boots more rugged yet maintaining the refined look, and more practical for Winter.

    I like the way they turn out:

    BTW, the chromexel leather scuffs easily. :fu:

    None, the tan Addisons are dyed through and through. Rub the scuffs out with your finger and a little boot oil if necessary.



    I have mine half soled with that heel plate and the Raptor half sole. I get good heel bite while the half sole is awesome in snow, mud and slick wet floors.

    They still need to be weather proofed following the method you outlined.


    Thank you.

    When the weather is nicer, I will try to take better pics.

    Hmmmm, a pair of black Stocktons would work well over the winter. They'll pair well with my elk duster and a Stetson.

    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...
