    It is possible with any MTO from my website. Just need to include "Topy Soles" in the "Notes" section at the end of the order process. I can also get G&G to stick them on to my stock shoes if required.

    You are correct. The Dainite would last longer and the Topy soles would need replacing often and I know some people have experienced trouble removing them by local cobblers so choose your cobbler well. Also, G&G offer the Double Dainite sole, which is what is more commonly used and they have a Single Dainite sole which is finer and more suited to their sleek appearence. I'll post images tomorrow of both.

    Thank you for your answer. If a good cobbler can replace the topys then it is perhaps more "healthy" for the shoes longevity wise. It is a minor operation compared to replacing the whole sole. I am only speculating though, I have no specific knowledge of it.

    Thank you for your help before but No I can't upload images from my iPad or iPhone . If anyone could help that would be great because I can send images of G&G's on a more regular basis.

    It seems that G&G can make any pair look sleek regardless of dainite soles. Now that's skill.

    Personally I would not have rubber soles on those kind of shoes. But looking at that I agree with you.

    :) how you been tits? long time no speak.


    have you tried the tapatalk app? it has excellent photo uploading.

    the single danites are indeed much nicer looking on the sleeker shoes imo.
