Yuketen Maine Guide Boots for Bureau

Bureau posted pictures this afternoon of some new Maine guide boots being made for them by Yuketen. Are these some of the new goodyear welted versions that were announced earlier this year?

While nice and no doubt comfortable, there is something crude about attaching a sole meant for a work boot onto a shoe meant for the great outdoors. I think a much better choice would have been to use something like Vibram’s stalker sole, which has both a good reliable tread and a low visible profile.
