I disagree, I find Dainite to be a great poor weather sole, I find it to be a bad adverse weather sole (as poor as leather, if not even slightly worse on smooth ice). When it is snowy or icy a commando is best. NYC/Boston/London are all really rainy cities, but they don't snow too often without warning, so I find I have a preference for good wet weather soles. It really is preference though. I've been fine in drizzles with leather soles.
