I bought a pair of black AE McTavishes off the Bay in which the previous owner's foot imprint was very uncomfortable. As the soles were kind of squishy already, I sent them into B Nelson to put red Dainite soles on them with antique edges. I figured if I was going to spend the money to resole them, I might as well spend a couple extra bucks to make them rainy day shoes and have them last longer than standard leather or JR soles. Nick did a great job releveling the insole for me so the previous owner's imprint was mostly gone. After a couple of wears out in town, I can feel my new imprint in the shoe, and it is super comfortable to wear. Even in wet conditions, I've had no issue with slipping with the Dainite soles, and they feel similar to leather soles in terms of comfort. Nothing but praise for B. Nelson!
