    If you could post a few pictures of Ullswater in Mahogany country calf I would greatly appreciate it. I am trying to determine whether to get Galway in Rosewood or Mahogany.

    Considering a RTW Dover with Dainite soles, but I am curious about the following:
    - How does the thickness of a Dainite sole compare to say an EG double or the forefoot thickness of a H/AF sole?
    - Since sunken metal toe taps cannot be applied to Dainite soles, are Dainite soles a bad idea for wearers that wear though the toe section fast (between 5-10 wears) of leather soled shoes?

    I've never measured but visually Dainite and double leather seem the same thickness.

    Certainly no need to protect any part of a Dainite sole - you will not be wearing through the toe section in a hurry! Firstly, the material is extremely hard wearing. Secondly, most of the contact with the ground is made by the 'studs'.

    If you want a sleeker, less agricultural look, I believe EG has a thinner rubber sole known as the 'Thames'.

    I do pretty regularly. I also wear boots during summer when I feel like it; I've never been troubled by them feeling too warm or anything.

    Not sure I'd agree with the observation that Dainite soles (presumably the studded rubber ones) are hard-wearing although it obviously depends on how much they're worn.

    Studded rubber Dainite soles are also useless on ice...

    Danite is okay wearing compare to ridged soles.

    The weakness is still at the heel and danite heels worn out as quickly as normal stacked leather/rubber heels

    +1. I also think that Danite is hard wearing, at least compared to leather soles. Not as hard wearing as say, ridgeway or commando soles, but they are not meant to be.


    Also agree with this. I suspect this is b/c the density of the Danite rubber is similar to the rubber part of normal leather/rubber heels.

    This was my point, especially if the boots or shoes are actually used for walking any kind of distance. Studded Dainite would be my last choice of rubber sole for a boot that was made for serious walking, or indeed just general winter use for different reasons. If I wanted a low-profile 'walking sole' then, if I had the choice, I'd probably go for a Victory sole.
