    yes, i've seen the dainite debate but I am actually of the opinion that dainite works quite well in swedish conditions. I have another pair of boots w/ dainite and I think it works well and e.g ridgeway looks a bit too much so overall I think dainite is a good middle way

    as long you don't have snow, it works, agreed.

    I can't take any credit for anything other than whipping out the old cash. It's a preconfigured RTW model.

    on snow i prefer lug soles. on ice nothing really helps.

    my concern with dainite on snow is quite simple. the snow fills in the studs and builds a slippery surface. if it works for you. more power to you. kudos.

    Lovely.

    MTO?

    I a little bit of the pin grain as an accent on a pair of Oakhams. It catches the light so beautifully.

    Thank you.
    MTO yes, dark brown pin grain on MH71 last (D width).

    PLEASE post pictures after some wearings and polishings. I'll be very interested to see how these mature.

    I think my doggy day care has deer bones - or maybe elk. Wonder if elk'd work?

    Really like those oxfords. I feel that at least 50% of G&G models are fugly, cant understand the love those models get here

    50% is an overstatement. Some of their original models are mostly rehash of classic designs. Only the newer ones have been strafing away into more exotic designs.

    you like chisel toes or not? that's the question. there you are...

    deco is a different beast, imo. it really needs the type of guy and wardrobe to implement them.
