Dainite's rubber-studded soles are as practical today as they were when introduced in 1894. Since then, Dainite continues to make its famously durable soles in Leicestershire, England. Reinforced with Silica and Aluminum silicate, these non-marking soles are highly regarded for all-weather traction and timeless style.
Chromexcel is made using proprietary techniques and formulas developed over 100 years ago in a factory still owned and operated by the Horween family in Chicago. It's characterized by a rich pull-up in full aniline, hand-rubbed finish, superior comfort, and durability. Chromexcel was made famous by its patina—the unique character of each hide which comes to life with wear.
