@audog Can you share your thought between rubber and leather sole form GS?
The leather sole, while requiring a bit of break in, in fact maybe a lot of break-in as it is so good, is simply more comfortable to walk in (IMHO). I find the rubber sole, which is akin to Dainite, a less comfortable sole for my feet. Kind of a Princess and the Pea thing. I can actually feel the rubber "nibs" or whatever they are called. I find that they do not "break in" and become as flexible as a good leather sole, and GS has a superb leather sole, one of the best. It is a personal preference, and I do not want anyone to avoid purchase of a pair because "Audog said so", if one prefers rubber then go for it. I prefer leather.

Quite the opposite actually. Wondering if I should actually give leathers soles a chance now.

Another leather sole guy here! And yes GS makes a solid leather sole with serious durability!
The GS leather sole is awesome, I have a pair of Dune Diesel boots pushing 4(?) yrs now and they have a lot of miles, even been wet and are just starting to show wear, I figure another 3-4 yrs before considering resole. Of course, my rotation is a bit larger than the average shoe/boot consumer.

Like those chinos, what are they?
These are Shockoe Atelier x Division Road Field Trousers


You can find similar canvas pants from quite a few makers if you don't quite love the cut, fabric, pockets, etc on this makeup.

Thanks! I love duck canvas, wish it was a fuller cut in lower leg though.
