Agree middle ones are too Grenson.

Agreed. Good point on the arch observation.

I'm leaning to the 2060, closely followed by the Dr Sole.
bottom. What’s up with the toe? Looks so flat.

That's what drew me originally. 2060 it is!

Not keen on any of those. Think middle will look ok after they’re less pristine. Don’t like top or bottom

I think fuk hivemind would have had you go for the christy sole a few years ago…which would make me think twice about following the fuk hivemind in 2021.

if they had the choice i'd go gloxi cut vibram but what do i know, i really liked those wallabees that were getting slated Oops

Bottom one, as Mr W says it’s the raised arch that makes it.

These were based on my original choices for Yorkshire Sole to compare so hopefully got ahead of the Fuk curve. The raised arch is definitely what appealed to me originally. Nearest to the original I could get I think.

2060

The wedge looks ok but dr soles wear much quicker than the Vibram.

Are those 2060 available from your cobbler or did you source?
