From the formal and classic Plain Leather Sole, to the new casual Running Rubber Sole, each one has its own personality. See underneath how you can choose different shoes soles.
The Dinanite shoes sole
Dainite is the only rubber outsole that can be considered luxurious and the best option for someone looking for a long-lasting rubber sole with an added measure of durability. As well as being clean, slick, and applicable to anything from an understated derby to a more rugged service boot – Dainite are applied to footwear using a Goodyear welt – making them easy to re-craft time and time again. Also, with the feet on the ground, there is visually little difference between a leather sole and a Dainite sole.
Whilst rubber soles come in all different guises, a Goodyear welted Dainite sole is the most desirable option available. The Dainite has a pleasing aesthetic and offers a durable alternative to the traditional leather sole.
What is Dainite Good for?
Wet weather is the main reason most people should wear Dainite soles over leather. Dainite soles are better than leather soles in the rain simply because the sole is waterproof and does not wear down faster when wet like a leather sole does.
The addition of the Dainite sole to our Goodyear Outsole repository promises a host of exquisite footwear choices that exude luxury and high-end style. With a Goodyear welted double Dainite sole, you can be assured of a good grip in all weathers that will improve the wearability of our footwear.
Vibram rubber wedge sole
Made from a sturdy rubber compound, the new off-white Moreflex® Vibram® sole unit is the perfect choice for rough and wet weather. Besides being waterproof, they also provide improved grip performance, superior flexibility for extra walking comfort, and excellent durability.
You can customize this sole with any of the welt styles available for Goodyear welted shoes, which includes the Country and City welts, in black, dark brown and natural colours.
Unfortunately, the sole does not allow laser engraving of your brand logo on the bottom, due to limited space. You can still request, however, laser engraved initials on the side.
Leather soles with Mountain & Buttons injections
Just as Dainite soles, rubber buttons or mountains injections provides better grip when walking than leather soled shoes. The rubber buttons or mountains injections will not perform as well as Dianite soles during wet weather is the main reason most people should wear Dainite soles over leather, but it does enable the shoes to breath by allowing more air to circulate when walking.
