They are by request only from what my C&J contact tells me. The micro rubber is a thinner sole. Quite comfy.
The Ryder III, a bit clunky looking, looked at it yesterday but Church's QC prevents me from reaching for my credit card.
Look at the C&J Tetbury, less clunky than the Molton and Ryder III.
Can you explain the micro rubber a little more? Does it have the same traction pattern as dainite but thinner?
I actually already own the Tetbury in black nubuck, and it's awesome to wear with formal wear. I'm hoping to get some dark brown suede chukkas for everyday wear with jeans. I like the Church's, but I have almost entirely C&J already and they've never let me down.
