Questions for current West Point cadets and/or their parents: How much of a benefit is there to purchasing Bates Durashocks Low-Quarters as compared to the DLATS Oxfords? Is there a significant difference in comfort, quality, or break-in time? Not only are the Durashocks 3X the cost (which really is the lesser of my concerns since I will do or purchase any-moral-ethical-authorized-thing I can to best prepare my DS for BEAST & Plebe Year), but there's also an apparent supply shortage for Bates Durashocks (E001112 & E00932). It's really hard to find his size. Any advice will be appreciated.
