The R2 has a leather midsole so does provide stiffness. The R1 not as much but I’ve found no issues with too much flexibility or breathability.I have this sole on my Dovers and it's amazing indeed.
But don't you think you lose a bit of flexibility, breathability and suppleness compared to a leather sole?
For a boot or if it rains a lot, the tradeoff is obvious but for a summer or dress shoes, I think I still prefer a leather sole, don't you?
I think the R1 looks better with loafers but with boots, the R2 is definitely the way to go.
