Please let us know how they hold up in the bad weather. Thanks.
The pair of boots that I currently own, have commando soles. I cant find any new pairs of brown boots with with commando sole that I like. This is why I am considering dainite. Is dainite really that bad on snow and ice?
Dainite is awful.
For rubber to be as hard wearing and to last as long as leather, it needs to be quite dense, which unfortunately means they don't grip at all. Dainite has this disadvantage, but also doesn't have much traction. I find leather soles actually have more traction than dainite.
My advice is to get a boot with leather soles and have a cobbler install commando on them.
