Thanks @Giannis .. I was surprised how heavy they are compared to my other Italian boots. Finger crossed I didn't buy the version with a problematic Dainite sole. The choice was either these or Crockett Jones Chiltern, but the more rounded shape of toe was on Church's side.
Thanks @sevenfoldtieguy .. I would also prefer a Dainite sole for boots. Pity JL decided to go with the November sole for their boot line. I think November is good enough for derby and loafers, but boot needs to be on Dainite Studded or even better Ridgeway sole.

One of my major concerns was it will be clearly visible from a side that the shoe is featuring a rigid rubber sole, especially since it's a loafer. However, it is not noticable at all unless you know it's there and focus to catch it. That's why I posted a quick side look photo. I can say it has a clean look of a leather sole shoe with the functionality of a rubber. November sole is great, good as Dainite, perhaps even tougher. I can see these loafers will have a long...
