Well said. I've never understood all the chatter about Dainite being poor in winter. Snow and ice must be different where I live. Way better than leather, in my experience - and differences between it and other synthetics amount to splitting hairs.
Oddly enough, I was just reading a novel last night where the protagonist was extoling the virtues of Dainite soles on his Cheaney shoes. No, I'm not making that up.
During fall and winter in the northeast, I am always nervous leaving the house in leather-soled shoes, even when the weather seems to be ok. It can change quite quickly and while I have SWIMS, I don't always carry them along with me. I have never had an issue with Dainite - they have performed exceptionally well for me in the rain and light snow. Few people can tell the soles are not leather. Moreover, they are comfortable. Some people seem to hate Dainite, but I've never had a bad experience.
