Dack's Perfect Shoes for Wet Weather

January 01, 2015

 

Polished leather is known for being water repellent and easy to maintain. Add a Dainite sole and our Dack's black polished leather Dufferin becomes truly water resistant, and perfect for wet weather. 

Dainite soles have stood the test of time, and have become the rubber soles of choice for the most discerning of footwear manufacturers. The original design, which first appeared in 1910, remains the most popular sole. In a world of ever increasing change, this timeless styling is as superbly practical and functional today as it was a hundred years ago. Designed to provide comfort and grip in all conditions, Dainite soles have the added advantage of not attracting or storing dirt.  Shoes are easily wiped clean if required as there are no cleats or heavy grooves to hold the dirt.

Shoe Width

Our standard shoe width is an F fitting. However, in order to accommodate variations in foot size, alternative width fittings are available in certain styles.

Narrow Fit = D width (USA E Fit)

Standard or Average Fit = F width (USA EE Fit)

Wide Fit = G width (USA EEE Fit)

Extra Wide Fit = H width (USA EEEE Fit)

As a shoe increases in size, the length and width both increase. A size 10F shoe is therefore one size bigger and one size wider than a size 9F shoe. A size 9G shoe is a size wider than a size 9F - in other words the width of the shoe would roughly correspond to a size 10F.

In the table below, the 11D, the 10F, the 9G and 8H would all be roughly the same width.
