great shoe, great color wrong last - sorry these would so much better on the GG06 ot MH71
We can agree to disagree. I have the Thorpe, which is basically a boot-version of the Hove, in MH71 and I'm not entirely satisfied with my choice of last here. I actually think that the Hove looks best in the TG73!
actually, dainite is useless on snow. we had that before, though.
Something I missed? I know it's not great on ice.
I can go so far as to agree that Dainite is not a very good snow sole, but to go as far as to say it's useless is wrong. The rubber in a Dainite is too dense/hard for good traction on snow and ice but still it's, IMO, a more elegant choice than Crepe or Ridgeway. Micro would probably be the best choice for a good balance between snow/ice traction and elegance. Micro also has the advantage of being more comfortable than Dainite.
sorry but i disagree, TG73 make the design look too flat, it is not really suitable for derby's IMO, looks better in oxfords
i dont think the dainite soles are designed or not at least origionally designed for city use for rain and snow conditions as the studs will not have any traction in these condition, i seem to remember dainite being for more country use, because of the stud - just think of football/ soccer boots??
To me shoes with Dainite soles are a little more comfortable compared with leather soled shoes when walking on hard pavement. The difference in comfort is greatest when the road has a hard pebbled surface.
imo, it's not worth discussing. each to his own.
then you should get a HAF also TG can make a quite a thick single sole which i have on some of my BS's
no, you didn't. btw, no rubber sole is good on ice in the meaning of good.
Couldn't agree more. The hove should be only suitable for the 71s or the 70 in my opinion.
Have to agree with luk-cha, that sleek elongated last doesn't suit the Hove.
wear them in good health... ...and watch your steps
