    I think he means double sole with a dainite outsole: the midsole is typically leather.
    But maybe I'm wrong. two layers of dainite is a bit much... [​IMG]

    I thought that's what we were talking about -I've never seen a double layer of Dainite...

    that would be the best of both worlds imo, but I'd be happy with double leather if the majority of people prefer it.

    By 'lost', I meant that I just don't care for (studded) Dainite soles.


    I have a couple of boots with studded Dainite soles and don't find them any more comfortable than leather. They actually feel a bit less 'damp' underfoot than leather does, if that makes sense.

    And I don't mind wearing leather soles on wet pavement. If it's really pouring, I use rubber overshoes.

    As for studded Dainite's purported usefulness on ice, I've found it to be as death slippery as leather, so no advantage there. The only Dainite sole that looks like it might provide some sort of added traction on snow/ice is the Ridgeway, but no one wants that on the Cheviot (myself included).

    That's fair enough. Tbh, I'm not worried about ice or rain, I live in the Middle East and spend most of my time walking on tile, marble and concrete, on which I've found rubber to be superior to leather regarding the slip factor - but I can just put a topy on, so no big deal.

    How do I gauge interest here, I'm pretty new to SF - is there a poll or something? Or do just wait until enough people say yes in this thread?

    So who's interested in a Cheviot II in Brown / Whiskey shell cordovan?

    [​IMG]

    Sole preference: Double Leather / Dainite?

    I'm partial to a natural storm welt like trickers have :

    Or just an antique edge looks good.

    The price is listed at 575 GBP inc. VAT in their catalog for the Cheviot II in colour 8, so I assume people outside of the UK will be paying 460 GBP + 30 or so quid for delivery.

    Dark brown, hidden eyelets, and natural storm welt on dainite sounds good to me.

    All, I have sent a PM to all people that I knew were interested in the Whiskey Skye GMTO. If you are interested and you DID NOT get a PM, please notify me immediately, so I can send you all the relevant information.

    Price is £700 (with VAT) or £562.50 (without VAT - People in US)... £30 for shipping plus if shoe trees are desired, they are an additional £60 (with VAT) or £50 (without VAT)... So for US people, the shoes will be approximately, £592.50 (~$975) shipped.

    The specifications would be as follows - if you want to try and veto a decision, please let me know.
    • Crockett & Jones Skye 2 Wingtip Boot
    • Last: 335
    • Upper: Whiskey Shell Cordovan
    • Sole: Double Leather Sole
    • Eyelets: 4 Exposed Brown Metal + 4 Brown Metal Hooks (Similar to Lindricks)
    • Welt: Storm - Possibly flat if possible
    • Edging: Antique

    Have a good Tuesday!

    -Mike

    FYI, the shoemart has some Alden longwings in whiskey if anyone's feeling impatient!
