    I like their commando sole. It's not as low key as Alden's, but it's not too loud either.

    does anyone know if it's possible/how difficult it would be to get the sole replaced with a dainite sole?

    I'm going to be strolling through Victoria in a few weeks and dropping by for a visit. Anyone in particular I should ask for to assist me with a fitting and custom order?

    Yes, being 60 and having experienced a lot of winters I can say that no sole works well on ice.

    There is a shoe repair company in NYC (I forget their name right now) they carry Dainite and will do it for about $150. You have to send them in, takes 2-3 weeks - I had them do work in the past, they are good. Perhaps someone here remembers their name.

    That not a 100% correct I've seen people in snow pacs walk on ice like it was dry.


    Viberg offers Vibram 100 fire and ice.

    Don't et me wrong, I can walk fine on ice - have done it for years, but it was not because of the sole of the shoe. I have used both leather and rubber lug. Of course, I'm speaking of my experience and have not tried every possible sole, just the standard ones we were speaking about. I mean if you really want to be safe strap on cleats:
