With strong family connections between the owners of the two companies, Crockett & Jones and The Harborough Rubber Co have designed and developed a new high quality rubber sole for AW16. Unique to Crockett & Jones and aptly named the ‘City Sole’.

 



I do hope this has improved the traction a bit, as the Dainite soles sometime feels like the soap bars ..

LoL, that's what I referred to .. What's the point of the studded rubber soles if they are slippery on the wet surface? Under the normal weather conditions even the regular leather soles are good enough ..

I had my mind on when I get on the bus. While I stand on the metal surface all of my shoes make me slip more or less except the ones with the dainite soles :P

I've always used dark brown (both cream and paste) and it seems in keeping with the original color. I also use black in the toe cap but that's just me.

my dainite work well, go figure

Polish, wax, paste, ren, spit? Anything goes, throw it on!

one place dainite doesn't work well that I can think of is marble, this new sole looks slimmer, wonder how it stack up to the rubber soles GG uses

Hello - I'm looking at picking up a pair of Skye 3 boots and I have a couple of questions I hope the local experts can help with!

 

First one is sizing.  I'm a 7.5 UK in Carmina Rain.  With dress socks they are right on the money and slightly snug on the instep as an Oxford and fit nicely as a blucher.

 

Second question is:  Where is the best place to buy them for someone living in the US?  Pediwear is out of stock.  Any other ideas?  Thanks!
