MCA, Phil - Thanks for clearing up the subtle differences between the Banbury and Warwick Bry - One more thing to note: EG has two variations on the Dainite sole. They have a standard Dainite sole and they have a thinner one which is a Dainite sole "without middles". I believe I have the heavier one (standard) since I requested a double Dainite sole when placing the order. Regarding the Thames rubber sole, I received the following reply from Edward Green:
Quote:The Thames sole is a little lighter in weight than the dainite with a less pronounced tread.It is probably best on a shoe intended for wet weather on a town shoe.
