Are you planning to get this resoled by EG? If yes it would be great if you could share your experience after the recrafting!
Am still thinking about this;there are no good options where i live so most likely will shoot it out to EG

Well, those appear to be my size. If you're selling, let me know!

These are on the R1 sole, amigo. The R2 sole is a bit thicker and meant to look just like the HAF sole, but in rubber.
Thanks for the correction. I thought I saw an extra layer, but you're right. Comparing it to the R2 sole I have I see the difference.

Also, I gotta say that the HAF sole is really growing on me. I love it. After the first wear, the sole flexed just enough for it to be comfortable and I can really feel the thickness of the double leather in the front of the shoe.

Agree! The rubber sole is pretty durable as well. I think it's a perfect option for shoes, as Dainite is a bit too chunky and better suited to boots, in my opinion.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
