I have a few pairs of shoes with Dainite soles and don't find them very comfortable with them being very hard and non compliant. Is the Commando sole more flexible and comfortable? I've been looking at a pair of Church's Graftons with the Dainite Soles and Trickers Keswick with the Commando soles. Thanks in advance.

I have the Commando on pair of Prada boots (I think they were made by Church's) and think tehy are pretty comfortable. I don't have anything with a Dainite sole to compare with unfortunately. I personally prefer the look of the Commando sole.

I have Grafton on Dainite and Trickers (Wetherby) on Commando. There's not much in it for me. The Grafton are on the 173 last and took forever to break in. The Commando soles on the Trickers are pretty hard too, certainly not soft like a Vibram sole. Neither are what I'd call comfortable.

The Commando is much better for grip in mud but picks up little stones in the tread all the time which drives me mad. For a non-country shoe for wet weather I'd go with Dainite.
