This month they introduced a new "dynamic flex comfort" sole. This uses a leather and rubber sole, with the leather under the arch. They have also slightly changed the innersole to replace the leather board insole with a cellulose board, and the steel shank has been replaced by fibreglass to be lighter, and avoid setting off airport scanners. I haven't tried this sole, so I can't comment on it.
This new sole sounds very interesting. I checked the RM site and bootsonline, but didn't see any info about this. Does anybody know about availability of this new sole and if there's any info online?
I have two pairs of RM's (Gardeners and Comfort Turnouts), but I have never found either of them to be very comfortable. I love the look and build quality, but I'm on my feet a lot, and often lugging heavy equipment cases around in my work as a photographer. So the leather insoles are too hard and the comfort soles are marginally better, but I don't like to wear either for a full work day.
I've been thinking about a pair of Blundstones, but I wonder if this new sole would be worth considering as well. Any thoughts on whether it would be more comfortable than my Comfort Turnouts?
