I was looking at the Alico Summit all leather backpacking boot on Sierra Trading Post - specs say the midsole is nylon and leather.  

I've never heard of a nylon and leather midsole - is that really old school?  My first pair of backpacking boots were Lowa's back in 1973 and they have PU midsole, which is what I prefer.
