Since 1910 the Dainite studded sole has provided comfort and grip in all conditions while not attracting or storing dirt.
This sole is perfect for our wet winter conditions. It is more robust than leather in wet conditions as well as the added benefit of being slip resistant.
All our Custom Made Footwear can be specified with this sole.
The name ‘Chukka’ is said to be derived from the seven and a half minute Polo playing period called a Chukker or Chukka. The term is itself derived from the Hindi word ‘chukkar’ meaning ‘circle’ or ‘turn’.
