Beautiful. Arrow, those swapped out soles are awesome!

Can't wait to get my pair of #8 captoe boots from J.Crew.

I like what you done with the sole, the way the Cat's Paws are integrated in the leather looks great.

Where did you get this done?

Pretty nice collection btw.

Thanks for your comments.

I had Al from Al's Attire (San Francisco, North Beach) do the resoling for me.

I want to see a pebble grain oxford with commando sole... does this exist?

only thing similar to this is the LS x Alden safari boot, if i recall correctly

Not trying to push another brand here but in answer to your query:

Trickers makes one called the Ilkley. I'm not sure if they do an oxford as well. Seasons ago, Junya did a variation that was stunning. Tres carried them. I want a pair very badly.

It's a Vibram sole protector, it's really thin and I have them put on all my shoes, I like it better than the Topy type as it has small ridges for extra traction - it helps when the office floors are marble and slippery as hell after rain/snow.

I was checking out leather sole and their new Ultimate Jumpers... I love my Ultimate Indy's I just had to check them out.

They have a cap toe, but in the photo it doesn't look symmetrical to me... is it an optical illusion? The left foot looks crooked.
