Storm SP-901 / Dexter '9' question
« on: August 05, 2015, 02:34:28 PM »
so I didn't want to wait for the Dexter '9's to hit the shelves, so last month I ordered a pair of Storm SP-901.

As far as I can tell, the SP-901 are the same as the '9's.

I wanted the leading edge heel, but Storm doesn't offer one. So I purchased a Dexter one. The fit is close, but the Dexter heel is slightly larger than the Storm heel. Performance wise there is no issue. My OCD doesn't like it.

So my question: are the heels for the Dexter '9's the same as their SST8s, or unique to the '9's?

 The SST 8's & 6's plus the SP9 series have interchangeable soles and heels...the 9's have their own sole and heel combos that work on no other shoe...that is part of the uniqueness of the 9

Ric, won't SST8 heels work on the new 9's??

Yes but not the same as the ones made for the 9's

Jeff tells me the 9 specific sole/heels won't be available for at least another month. If that's true, I'm going to have to make due with my SST8 red leather heel in the mean time.

I understand that Dexter wants to get the shoes out there.  However, one would think they would have all the necessary heel/soles options available and not just what comes on the shoes.
