1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I am Chris. Obviously it depends on the models. I would need size 8.5.

    Agreed. I might be as well -- all depends on the pics. I'm sure you could convince a few people to buy.

    What kind of styles would they be? I'd certainly be interested in a 10.5, if they fit the same as the PS Grenson's.

    I'd like to see them, Chris. Would they be Footmasters, rather than Masterpieces? Or do the rubber-soled models come from completely different lines? What is their regular retail price?

    I would be interested, too, in size 9D.

    I had a pair that aportnoy now owns - black penny loafers with the rubber sole. I don't know... what do you think AP?

    Very nice indeed. I would rate them fairly close to Masterpiece levels. I could really use some rubber soled oxfords.

    The leather creases much more though and seems a bit stiff. I don't know if it's grain corrected(?) The Dainite soles are great though. I'm always slipping on leather in the rain. Particularly by Grand Central, for some reason...

    I might be interested in 11D's depending on style.

    I know the feeling. I am hoping to get something a little less clunky than my Fenestrier, Paraboot, Weston rotation that still has a dainite sole.

    I have a pair of EG Westminsters w/ a dainite sole, but I can't bring myself to wear them in foul weather.[​IMG]

    If there are a pair of boots with a dainite or vibram sole, I would be very interested.
