I'm talking Dainite too, British made.I'm talking Dainite. Dainite in 10cm or more of snow and the slush. Leather soles are no good when the ground is like that. Total car crash when its slush and pretty grim when its snow. And it can be snow for upto 4 months here in Norway. Then it melts, freezes overnight, melts and so on for 3-4 weeks. I know their hard but I'll take that over slopping wet anyday.
