    daily drive – rubber
    special occasions – leather

    it’s all bullshit! goodyear construction is the way to attach outsole to vamp when there is no chemical glue available. Nowadays phisical properties of chemical-glued rubble o/s are much more better than leather o/s, durable, flexiblity, pull-strength , etc, let alone cost. Goodyear construction used only in another two small markets: workshoe & handmade high price dress shoe for men’s due to the high cost. For workshoe goodyear construction is more strong; for hand-made men’s shoe , goodyear construction could be labeled as "expensive & high-end".

    For usual customer, cemented rubber o/s shoe is the best option who can’t afford the cost and who don’t have carpet to walk on.

    this guy is just selling his product.

    Rubber loafers… Leather oxfords.

    Rubber oxfords are a crime to humanity…

  4. Alejandro Rubio on May 11, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    Leather why? You can ground yourself just like electronics we need to be grounded

  5. Happy Puppy on May 11, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    I add rubber sole to leather.

  6. Ronald Kickert on May 11, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    You missed the point on functionality. If a man wants to go formal dancing, forget the rubber soles. You won’t be welcomed on the dance floor! Leather soles are the way to go. But, first rough them up on the bottom a little by walking on the sidewalk. Then hit the dance floor. Obviously, the speaker here does not go formal dancing.

  7. mrbatzach on May 11, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    I have really bad weather and I’ve found that rubber lasts longer(so long as it is stitched) and it is just easier

  8. youareinflames on May 11, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    if slipping all the time and playing a roulette with which part of your body gets bruised or broken then go with the leather sole. Luxury is pain, or so I heard.

  9. JA G on May 11, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    Rubber vs Leather – I would say buy Leather and glue the rubber sole savers to the bottom. Especially if you live in EU where there are a lot of cobble stones. Slippery.

  10. 4 ALPHA on May 11, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    It’s nt matter of expensive but I like rubber sole its quite Nd comfortable … don’t y I don’t like leather sole voice walking in leather sole tk tk!!

  11. Ed Strazz on May 11, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    Funny, most vendors add rubber soles and charge a premium? Milking us for a profit, you be the judge.

  12. LostDutchman on May 11, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    I struggle with leather soles on dress shoes where I live because it is always so wet. Even with my leather sole shoes I’ve had to have a cobble add a rubber sole which is depressing but absolutely necessary for safety reasons.

  13. Abhishek G on May 11, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    One use and the good year welted leather sole has scraped off . First experience of such. Is it normal .. small minute stones getting stuck into it .. or should I just quit using them ??

  14. Tiana Chidester on May 11, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    Walk on crocodile skin 🙂

  15. Brian Crook on May 11, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    Most of the "stitched" rubber soles are actually a fake stitch. It doesn’t actually attach to anything. Sometimes it is hard to tell. For a Blake stitch, look inside the shoe, under the insole for the accompanying stitches. For a Goodyear welt stitch, make sure the stitches on top if the welt matches the stitches on the bottom of the sole.

  17. Signe Schwartzmann on May 11, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    Both have pros and cons. Which is why I wear both. If you are running or working in mud/snow then rubber holds up better for traction.

    Construction of the boot/shoe also itself is a pro/con. Glued boots don’t hold up as good as sewn in certain jobs were men work on hot/warn surfaces like HVAC.

    Few things to include. Boots have/been made for snow with leather soles. They have hobnails/claw type spikes on them. Obviously modern manufacturing makes a great shoe with a rubber sole for snow.

    Secondly, leather was around when pavement/concrete was no used for walkways and roads. Yea brick and cobble stones were in a lot of cities but larger percentage of people walked on dirt path/roads. Leather would hold up great.

    Lastly Leather is better for fit and form of your foot. Quality leather shoes with cork for cushion does not compress and loose it’s shape as rubber/foam shoes do.

    Materials being used on any product can be a determining factor on the life. There are different types of leather such as Cowhide, Steer and Bull. There are different types of tanning processes that effect quality. Bull hide that is Oak Bark Pit Tanned can be as tough as some rubber. Sadly as the soles made by the now defunct JR Redenbach. Ofc, Cowhide is less dense an more flexible and is great for vamps, uppers or even innersoles. So Construction and Materials being used determine a products life/durability.

    Make video on footwear for wide foot

  19. Arshad Shaikh on May 11, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    rubber sole it’s perfect for shoes it’s comfortable to causally used

  20. XFS540 on May 11, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    I prefer to do less praying for nice, dry weather, so yeah, rubber soles.

  21. SaaveComanche on May 11, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    One thing I would add is that if you do a lot of dancing, go with leather.

  22. sumarianson on May 11, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    With rubber soles your feet smell if you wear them for long periods. I had that problem when I was young and could not afford the leather. I much prefer leather and its comfort and looks!

  23. felix wong on May 11, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    Preferred leather. But in a quiet office with hard floor, I do not want the attention everytime I use the toilet. Rubber please…

  24. Johnn Lee on May 11, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    If u dont wanna go slipping and sliding go with rubber

  25. Happy Planet on May 11, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    I choose a rubber sole over a leather sole just because it lasts longer. After you wear a leather sole once it looks ugly after, rubber looks the same after wearing it and rubber is also more comfortable.

  26. John Lord on May 11, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    I prefer leather, in my state rubber dress soles melt so it’s either leather or vibram work boots.

  27. eu mesmo on May 11, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    Nothing lije lether sole

  28. Inner Life Photography on May 11, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    well Rubber soles are only good if the bood has GOODYEAR WELT… Just like Red Wing Heritage Boots etc. The entire leather and inner sole and outer sole are stitched together for higher durability and water resistant to some extent as the stitch is under the boots.

  29. L Silva on May 11, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    I say…
    Dress up and good weather…leather.
    Going for walks, shopping at stores, rainy days…rubber
    But! Make sure both have stitching underneath 😉👍

  30. Chris G on May 11, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    Rubber for everyday use. Leather for eveningwear.

  31. humor on May 11, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    how are you going to run on those slippery shoes when something happens?

  32. Francisco Mena on May 11, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    I have a vast amount of shoes, just like you, I live in Alaska and during the winter it is better to have rubber soles but I found out that if the leather sole is a little bit worn out it will give you some kind of good grip however there’s a sticky little overlays that work just fine for that extra grip! Saludos y un fuerte abrazo amigo!!

  33. Markus Dee on May 11, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    I’m a leather sole man but with heel and toe plates and hobnails because
    I work in the field.

  34. Imhotep on May 11, 2022 at 8:15 pm

    I love leather soles but as someone living in Scandinavia, Dainite soles are the way to go

  35. Travis Hinchey on May 11, 2022 at 8:15 pm

    Logically you would take the leather to moonwalk XD

  36. David Harris on May 11, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    Rubber I had comando grips put on my dress shoes they look cool

  37. zemneo on May 11, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    I always liked the vulcanized rubber used in combat boots. I’ve put on many more miles with rubber soles.

  38. Anthony Nguyen on May 11, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    Antonio, I have a question for you. I need help. I have a pair of oxfords with an anti-slip synthetic sole (I know, I made a mistake with buying that sole) but I spent 60 dollars on them and the leather on the rest of the shoes is really good. The only problem is that it’s grip is so strong that they make a squeaking suction cup noise on slick surfaces like tile. This is a huge problem for me because every time I go inside a store or something, I get strange looks. I’ve had them for 4 months and gone on asphalt and concrete and shuffled but the squeak returns in only a few minutes after going onto a slick surface. I’ve been thinking about getting rubber shoe grips with adhesives on them but I have a question. Are you able to use rubber shoe grips on oxfords even if they are already non-slip? Also, would the rubber shoe grips give me the signature clacking noise against hard surfaces like tile that I seek?

  39. Alvin Santoni on May 11, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    I have several leather sole shoes, but i thought i go with rubber for my everyday shoe strictly for comfort reasons. Somehow my leather shoes feel pretty hard on my feet.

  40. Unam469 on May 11, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    Working class prefers rubber.

  41. Jahangir Yar Khan on May 11, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    Very repetitive, you’ve ruined this video. A layman wud shoot himself hearing so much of Unwanted information.
    Question is simple n your answer is useless.!!

    Review it n see where U faultered

  42. Anas M on May 11, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    i feel that leather should be reserved for oxfords since you wana look sharp for more formal occasions. Derby and Penny loafers are more appropriate using rubber outsole since you probably use it more often , so you dont wear down ur leather too fast, you need grip and its a casual shoe anyway.

  43. Sean McCauley on May 11, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    I recently bought two nice shoes with leather soles and wow what a difference in feel. It is for sure less grip than rubber but I have Thursday Co boots for grip. The sole has superior tactile feel when driving or using my rheostat at work (Dentist). And that sound….. Really adds to the confidence and presence while walking around.

  44. Hanna Mäkelä on May 11, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    Very nice encapsulation, not to mention a myth-buster! 🙂

  45. Omizuke on May 11, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    I can’t do rubber. I find them uncomfortable for dress shoes. Specially considering the occasions you’ll wear them. Been my preference for over 10 years. And for a time wore them daily and never slipped. (I probably jinx myself) While I’ve nearly fall with rubber, due to tripping. Specially in an event where you dance. Like a wedding.

  46. Keith Fitton on May 11, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    I bat for both sides.

  47. Hector Vasquez on May 11, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    I lobe leather sole especially on cowboy boots way smoother for a guy like me with wide foot.

  48. David Holland on May 11, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    As an Englishman I feel that this question is more complex than this video suggests. You probably need both in your wardrobe. Leather soles are better in hot weather because they breath. Rubber soles are better in winter because they stop the soles soaking up rain water. Dress shoes in Italianate styles look better in thin leather but traditional British dress shoes are often Goodyear welted and look no heavier or less formal for having a rubber sole. My recommendation is to have both and for the rubber soles to be Goodyear welted over a base leather sole. Dainite or Vibram are preferred brands. Leather linings and insoles are essential, no matter what the outer sole is made of to absorb moisture. Lastly, leather soles are no guarantee of quality even if they come from a top brand. They can be found on cemented construction shoes from top brands that are unrepairable and fall to bits – particularly if they get wet. You can also find shoes with a thin layer of leather over a cemented construction shoe with a rubber sole in attempt to make the shoe appear to be higher quality than it is. Even the stitching is a variable feast on leather soled shoes with Blake stitched soles sometimes looking like Goodyear welted items but the trouble here is that Blake stitches wick water into your shoes: Goodyear welting does not. So before deciding on this matter, where do you live and does it rain a lot are probably the best questions to guide your choice.

  49. Corona on May 11, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    Leather is just cooler, that’s it.

  50. Mike Berger on May 11, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    PLEASE — I have to wear rubber but you can’t find them. I need a casual slip on that’s truly rubber with a soft "give". They don’t make them ! Suggestions?
