I think around $1,550 including the shoe trees and toe tips, give or take.

I would go with the Dainite rubber bottom instead of a ridgway for winter. It is cleaner looking, offers better traction, and last longer. If you want a dreassier option, go wi the wensum.

Thanks!

I think I'm going to order them in the DG70 with dainite soles.

Beautiful collection!

I am certain that the DG70 will look outstanding and with Dainite soles, you can get more use out of them than I. Enjoy!

Exactly what is the Wensum sole. I see it on the custom order page but am wondering what it is.

I am too. I emailed Nick but no response most likely because of the spam filter. Looks like a non-leather sole that better approximates a single leather sole better than Dainite or micro?

It is a thinner rubber sole. Provides insulation and traction while maintaining a dressier more elegant look that a chunckyier Dainite sole.
Personally, I would use it on dress shoes (osxford, monks, derbys), not boots.

So in terms of boots, would you choose Dainite over micro? also, where do you see the micro sole being best used? Any difference in wet/snow but not icy conditions?
post #5170 of 12485
Dainite for harsher conditions and more casual boots. Micro otherwise. They both offer good traction and wet insulation, but I think with dressier shoes you should keep them from becoming too casual looking by adding additional weight and heft to them. Leave those option for boots.

Thank you - that is more or less what it looked to be. But my search of the interwebz didn't generate any detailed information.

Makes sense. I have no experience with micro soles. I want to do 2 MTO's for boots to get me through winter and was looking at the Canterbury and Thorpe. What do you think: Canterbury on micro and Thorpe on Dainite?
post #5173 of 12485
I've seen a Caterbury on Dainite on Nick's tumblr that is out of this world. He even had it made in Burgundy Sell Cordovan. That would be my first choice.
post #5174 of 12485
Burgundy I could go for. Have never had cordovan because I have never really liked the way it looks.

IMHO, when Shell Codovan looks like this, you ought to consider it. This is my next boot.
