Give Filson customer care a call and let us know what you discover.
Having the shoes reheeled may provide you with a harder wearing heel. As has been mentioned it should not be necessary to replace the entire, seek another cobbler. I have a pair of vintage Florsheims with a metal v-cleat in the heel and they can be interesting to wear - noise, slip risk, damage to flooring, etc. Having a more substantial tap on the heel would not be for me.

This is where such things as the shoulder strap and pad or having a grip pad (as on the 257...
