Dainite or Itshide Commando for resoling everyday pair of AE calfskin Leeds?

I have a pair of AE Leeds in merlot calfskin that I wear for everyday wear at work. Since I also have a pair of AE Leeds on Shell Cordovan, I think I'd have AE craft this calfskin pair in sturdier soles.
I live in Minneapolis, where we have snowy or icy sidewalks almost half the year (!). The original leather soles with Toby work amazingly well.
What's your opinion, experience, advice about refracting with Dainite or with Itshide Commando?!

Ive found Ishtide to be a harder, thus more prone to sliding on hard surfaces than danite.

I also have used Vibram mini lug which give a bit softer, less severe feel to dressier shoes.
