    I appreciate the feedback. They are so comfortable I can't see returning tge. Got the for less than $200 so I thought the price was right as well.

    I special ordered my oxblood Daltons with Dainite as my walnuts have the leather. I agree it's a good sole for a boot, and much sleeker then a lug sole. I like it for some shoes too, as both the grip and durability should be better then leather and you don't need to worry about water as much.

    I know exactly what you mean - I still keep my CH Howland & Air Grants around if I want to jam them on also, but yeah I'm always looking. Wound up picking up a handful of AE drivers so far - definitely not worth the premium but at sale prices they're at least somewhat of an upgrade. The ae by AE stuff seems kind of all over the map though - the Kirkwood/Maritime was way better than I expected. The Desoto/Concordia and most recently that Sojourner? Not so much...

    Great feedback. Thank you. As I continue to think about it keeping them makes more and more sense. My only pair in Walnut to boot (see what I did there?). I'll likely keep them and add to the quickly growing collection.

    Beautiful! Where??

    Ordered a pair of blue saddle with white pebble grain ryden with hopes they'd be similar to the old Footjoy Classics Dry Premierre. Not quite as good but pretty nice. Had to return bc of improper sizing, but for $200, it was a great bargain

    If shoebank had a pair of Daltons in good shape in my size WITH Dainite, I'd snap them up. I prefer Dainite soles with boots. (And with less formal shoes.)

    In my opinion, dainite is as close to indestructible as anything I've ever seen. Although I'm not a boot man, if I were I probably would sole my boots only with dainite. Plus, it is comfortable as all get out. I do think there is a longer break in period over leather soles. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Macky T action tonight. The only acceptable shoe in my rotation for practice studios and crowded bars.

    PS, I'm officially the first Instagram user to hashtag #filthybarnweasels

    They are really not bad looking with the dainite in my opinion. Consensus is I am probably over thinking it. I have a pair of Walton's with commando soles that have served as my foul weather shoes and done ok. I think these could certainly serve that purpose too.

    Why not yet? Paul hasn't come through with the sponsorship?

    Any thoughts on the northland moc in red? I plan to wear them informally with shorts. Most of my shorts are a shade of blue or navy which is why I think red would be a good fit. Fwiw I already have a pair of brown suede sperrys

    Agree with Neo. I am a perfect 10C in the 5 last and find the Randolf in 10 B to be spot on.
