    I've had a lot of experience with dainite soles in snowy icy weather and I think they do great. They definitely give good traction. Now granted if you are walking on a patch of solid ice it's still gonna be very slippery, but the dainites do a good job. I think they do a pretty solid job of protecting the shoe from bad weather too, as opposed to leather soles.

    That being said, I think commando soles are better than dainite. And, if your boots have it, the veldtschoen construction is far superior.

    With my dainite soled shoes I still have to be careful walking around and to keep the shoes clean. With my C&J snowdon boot I trek right through anything whether it be snow, puddles, mud, etc. I took them out clay shooting the other day in the rain and mud and my feet were dry and the shoes were unscathed. I knocked the mud out wiped them off and gave them a good brushing and they are good as new!

    Chukkas with Dainite today as the snow came down in the Midwest. Great outside. I very nearly broke my ass on a terrazzo bathroom floor once I came indoors. YMMV.

    So today wins the prize for ugliest NYC commute. Snow overnight turning to freezing rain, slush, and massive partially frozen puddles. Tetbury's however, performed like champs and my feet are dry after a ~1 mile walk to the office.

    Can't find the info anywhere, and for some reason my "search this thread" function isn't working on Firefox... Can someone please supply me with the C&J factory shop phone number. I realize they aren't open until Friday. Cheers!

    Does C&J make or do MTO additional widths for their sizes? For example, the tetbury looks really narrow. Would it be possible to get an EE width instead of the E listed on their website? Is it possible to do additional widths as you can with Allen Edmonds?

    Wouldn't they call that an 'F'?

    Oh yeah, I'm sorry. I mean like the next wider width. I guess they go E to F to G? Is it possible to get something like the Tetbury in an F width? Either by ordering or MTO?

    I'm wondering the same thing, a G width would be great, but I could probably work an F width in some lasts

    Great deal on that Highbury. Way too small though. :(
