Get the soft sole double leather bottom! Very appealing boot!
I have had my pair since 1980 and thay are still in great shape.
These are amazing boots. They go well with any kilt if theres any scots on here. As for the boots not having grooves in the bottom take a wood file and make some grooves. Hope this helps.
I was extremely disappointed when my order came in. My boots were painfully narrow and did not fit well at all, despite being the same size as my day to day footwear. The length fit fine, but my foot was cramping just from having the boot on for a couple of minutes.
