I can't find the post, but I remember someone saying that the Peal cordovan boots are on a Dainite sole. And in fact, I seem to remember the description on Brooks' website saying they had a rubber sole. But I just received my pair, and they are on a leather sole. The description now does not say anything about the sole, but I think the second pictures shows a Dainite sole. These are great boots, and I'm quite happy. Just thought I'd post for informational purposes.
at one point they were definitely made on dainite. could you post a pic of you leather sole'd boots? from the boot pictures online, its easy to spot the dainite outsole. def not leather soled boots in the pic
