    New this season - C&J Lowndes - 348 Last - Dark Brown Golf Grain - Dainite Sole

    These things flew off the shelves. Took me nearly 3 months to get my hands on a pair.

    Perfect for the snow we got today in NY :D :D

    Will definitely be breaking this in tomorrow!

    You would wear those in the awful slush of snow & salt we have in the city at the moment? You must have cojones of steel ;-)

    Of course. It's just they look so nice... I would be worried about stepping into a 1ft pothole full of slush (which I did several times today) when crossing the street. Anyway, bravo sir!

[​IMG] These are very nice congratulations but I would advice not to wear them in the snow as the salt could ruin the leather, trust me I am speaking from experience! I am looking for a double monk myself so will have a look at these later in the month myself.Enjoy.

    I just wanted to report that my new Lowndes braved the snow and ice and salt and melt and slush and are unscathed! All hail the dainite sole!

    People say that Dainite studded soles are awful in the snow and rain, but I've had nothing but good experiences with them. Those Dainite soles have gotten me through some awful winters.

    For those boots with non-leather soles, most of mine have previously been commando. I recently acquired a couple pairs with Dainite soles and I have been quite impressed. Definitely prefer the silhouette of them to a commando sole, although I guess I could see how the commando would theoretically provide more traction.

    We don't get much snow in El Paso.

    In the real bad stuff, you'll get some snow that fills in the studs, and that wouldn't really happen with commando soles, but I haven't found it to be an issue for me. Ice is where traction is really lacking, and every sole will have a rough time on that.
