    Ridgeway is softer than Dainite or Commando, so they've better grip on wet indoors and ice. While crepe also offers great grip, it has a tendency to crack in time. Ridgeway is also softer to walk and makes little noise on any surface, and snow or pebbles won't pack into the wide grooves as easily. In short, it's the best "smart" sole unit I've tried and I will resole all casual pairs with it when the time comes. Oh, and that 94% mark is the rubber content. A shame it's not as widely used in fine footwear as the other soles.

    Very nice.

    Eventually I think I would like to get a pair of these or a pair of EG Nevis.

    Very kind dear heart.

    My favourite fit pic of these shoes and if I knew why I'd repeat it. Haven't the time for a photography course...

    Thank you, all.

    dddrees, I don't envy your conundrum! Choosing between EG's or G&G's model is a tough one as each is great. If I recall well, and don't quote me on this, EG does have a slight edge as their counters are leather instead of leatherboard.
