We can agree to disagree on Dainite. I live in Chicago and I think it is awful for snow and ice. It is fine for rain, but I can skate on Dainite. In my mind, if you want good performance in snow, get some galoshes or a lug sole. I have said my piece on this and will say no more.For the record, I didn't use the term "namby-pamby." That part of your response may not have been directed at me, but wanted to make it clear. Best to everyone.
But, if we are all being honest, Dainite is not a great snow and ice sole either. Yes. Dainite is good in a sustained downpour but it is not (when wet) better on marble or tile than leather.

That certainly is a counter-culture statement for SF. Insurrectionist.
I don't have the general SF aversion to wearing leather soles after rain, or even in rain. After all, my ancestors did it and it was good enough for them. The single dainite makes this better but not perfect for me. Oh well, I will give it some thought.
I am out.
I really like it -- really, really like it--but do not want the dainite.
You don't have any experience with Swims, do you? I don't own sneakers. I wear clunky boots only to hike. In Chicago galoshes are de rigueur. Have you seen the scotch grain boot that Steve has available on his website? Perfect for what you are looking to use the shoes for. Also, can be worn, especially on a harsh weather day, with a suit. Awesome looking boot. I am severely tempted. Oh, and the best thing, they are on the Rain last. That boot is pretty close to...
