    So question for you gents is Dainite generally that uncomfortable? I had them on suede Detroit last chukka had them on for 10 hour it felt like I am walking on hard floor very uncomfortable. Is this normal?

    I assume these are new shoes? They'll break in just like leather soles will. I find them very comfortable but some might disagree.

    I generally find it more comfortable and easier to break in. Are you sure the Detroit last is a good fit for your foot?

    I don't find them uncomfortable at all, much less "that" uncomfortable. They do have a firm feel underfoot - which I like. Not a choice for those who like a soft feel underfoot. I wore my Dainite-soled Galways as my sole footwear to a trade show in Atlanta where I was one my feet pretty much all day and into the evening for three days straight, not to mention travelling there and back. Very comfortable and supportive.

    Some like a soft, squishy mattress. Some like firm. Same deal here. Buy what you like.

    I don't recommend that course of action with any brand new shoes regardless of sole material.

    Got yea I was under impression that non leather soles shoes you don't really have to slowly break them in but thank you for your input. In future I guess I will walk around my house for few hours each day before taking them out for long spin. Good to know that breaking in rule applies to all sole shoes.

    I have 2 pairs of shoes on Dainite soles. They are fine. If you want the ultimate all day comfort, look no further:

    If you walked around for 10 hrs in a brand new pair of shoes - no blisters or pain - and all you felt was a hard sole - you're doing well I'd say. It's the whole show breaking in, not just the dainite.

    Dainite is probably the firmest feeling of the synthetic soles. Most of the others will feel a.bit softer. Crepe is probably the softest of all.

    I just started my shoe collection past 2 months & I were Nike 5.0 light as hell & very comfortable. I picked them up from Nordstrom anniversary sale. And most of my coworkers don't know what half of my shoes that I bought are or just rock ferragamos.

    Just joking around. Danskos are part of the uniform at lots of hospitals out here- doctors, nurses etc. wear them. Not particularly expensive but I'm told they are very comfortable.
