I thought I'd crowdsource what I should do with my ranger mocs on crepe. I picked them up from Need Supply at the beginning of the year for less than $300 and use it as a beater shoe. I was never a fan of the crepe sole but the plan going in was to resole via B.Nelson at some point anyway.
Since I feel the crepe sole makes the shoe heavier, I want to replace with a sole that will make the shoe lighter but can still be worn in all conditions for California (e.g. rain, sockless during summer, etc).
So this is what I'm considering:
- Keep the crepe sole
- Resole with a waterlock sole
- Resole with a dainite sole
- Resole with a ridgeway sole, if available

I would probably go Danite if I were in your shoes.
