I have got the run amocs with suede, and a leather sole. I really put the leather sole to your heart. I go out in it on summer weather and winter(5deg C here)
and its perfect :) You dont get the proprioception from any other artificial shoe you get in this one, i have xeros too and they have a 2mm sole and not as much ground feeling as the 4 mm leather sole.
I also love how although i am wearing wool sock with them now they still leave a footprint on the floor when I walk through a wet spot.

Do the front tips catch like the Rogues?

"At most once a day (maybe once every other day) I find the front lip of the Rogues might "catch" on something. The Rogues lack toe spring, so if I'm not dorsiflexing my toes enough (though it is easy to do in the Rogues as seen here), the lip can catch on uneven terrain and sorta trip you up. Well, "trip" is probably a strong word here, but it can just catch."

My Ramblers have this issue, and I love them, but it has taken me forever to get used to. Looking at the Roo's, but want something more business casual for work that doesn't have that problem.

@Ben -- that's interesting. I've never had this issue with the Rogues catching. I wonder if it was your pair or some other factor. I feel like when I walk in the Rogues my toes pull the sole up enough to keep me from tripping.

Ben- That's definitely something I hadn't even considered, because in all my time wearing them (which is a lot - I'm actually wearing them right now), I can't remember a time where the extended ridge at the front has caught or drug on the ground. I wear mine slightly long, and I can see how the flexible nature of the sole and upper could let it fold backwards if it did catch on the ground. But it seems like any normal rounded/stiffer tip shoe would probably do the same thing, but just skip/drag off the ground. I guess the way I walk never puts my toes close enough to the ground for any type of shoe to catch.

Have the Portlanders been discontinued?

I can't find them on Soft Stars' web site any longer.
