I just got these shoes. They have leather soles and I’m wondering if I should get heel taps or anything to protect the soles. Any advice?


Thanks for writing, Cory. Heel taps are a great way to prolong the life of your shoes, especially if you’re planning on wearing them a lot. Naturally, if you spend any amount of money on new shoes you want them to last as long as possible. Most cobblers only charge a few dollars to apply them, which is significantly cheaper than having your entire shoe resoled which could cost upwards of $50 or more. I would also suggest getting rubber taps as opposed to the traditional metal ones which can be quite noisy and potentially ruin wood floors.

Thanks again for writing, Cory. Keep reading and as always, stay Dandy.
