American football, and baseball are most notorious...
World Champs!

This is one of the things that irks me about my industry. Many of the operators are penny wise and dollar foolish. They also think that the public is stupid.

I prefer Dainite. Here's why: 1. They offer great traction. 2. They are made of superior rubber. I have seen variations of the commando sole. They are not all equal in quality. 3.

They have been "time tested" for over 100 years. 6. IMO they are dresser looking. 7. As stated in an earlier post,...
