I tend toward the rubber soles. I'll have a few leather-soled ones for definite "indoor" use, but when it comes to shoes that I might walk a fair distance in, I'll get the rubber soles: either complete rubber soles or vibram half-soles attached to the leather soles.
(Of course in winter, it's all rubber ... vibram gumlite if at all possible.)
Be there or be square. Only I can do both!
I've got a cat named Beefeater and a dog named Beefeater, and two goldfish called Beefeater and Beefeater. There's Beefeater my hamster and Beefeater my horse, and my piglet, known as Beefeater of course.
