    Agreed completely.

    Any chance of leather sole as opposed to Dainite? I am likely in either way but every boot so far has been Dainite or commando sole I believe.

    I can see the argument why the Dainite is appropriate with suede style makeup I just think the gunmetal eyelets, natural midsole and leather sole give it a super clean abd bit dressier look and really showcase the kudu

    The problem with double leather soles is that they are hard to maintain and resold.

    What about Vibram 705 half sole? I would go for it also...

    I understand your point. But is anyone else tired of dainite and commando soles on everything?

    We tried to do a leather sole, and it never got made. It I can get firm commitments (I.e. paid for) I'd be happy to do that makeup.

    I am fine with Dainite if you feel like leather sole is problematic.

    They look cool, but they wear down fast, particularly for a tough boot. You would need to either copy theory resole them regularly.

    I'm in for Dainite.

    Now I need to decide if I am going for this boot and the derby...

    So are we doing a natural midsole on this, or the black as had been discussed before?

    I think that more people wanted natural, but I am willing to do either.
