Have a question for those that may just have more experience than I with the Dawson moc. I had Quoddy send me a new pair of insoles. The old ones were not really rotted away or anything like that. But the glue had given up and I figured...well, the insole padding does simply give up the ghost after awhile. So, maybe new insoles are a good idea. I knew the arch pads were kinda' shot anyway. So a change might be in order on that score alone.
I guess somewhere along the way, Quaddy changed the insole material and in truth, they probably have a few times over the years. The insoles in the shoes have red perforated padding material. the New insoles have blue padding. It is not perforated and seems a bit thinner than the padding that came in the mocs.
Where the older insoles look like they have sort of given up the ghost is in the arch padding. That grey pad does appear much less robust than it was when new while the arch pads in the new insoles appear both more supportive and have more spring to them.
I could just use leather glue and reattach the old insoles. Thought I would just if anybody has gone from the older insoles to the newer and see any difference in comfort or any other factor. Maybe somebody has been buying Quoddy for a long enough period that they have some pair with the old insole and some with the new.
Thanks for the help.
