Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I don't know how this could possibly be true...we've had so much "expert" [cough] testimony here that rubber soles and topy sole protectors are not occlusive...no way, OJ...don't hold moisture in against the insole or the outsole. If rubber outsoles are not occlusive, how could affordable, expedient, modern, technologically advanced, plastic trees be occlusive??!! Plastic trees have holes in them and it's not like they're touching the lining everywhere and/or sealing off the leather they do touch.
It's SF heresy!!
My own personal opinion is that for short periods of time, no trees are better than plastic trees.
They don't all have holes in them. You know that:
They press up against the linings. You know that as well.
I'm not interested in arguing for the sake of argument.
