The soles were McKay stitched on. With some, your toes will "roll" over the front of the sole leaving no protection for the uppers. That's what's causing the scuffing. Others may roll out to the side rather than the toe. Treat the scuffed area with polish and keep an eye on it. If it continues to get worse bring your shoes to a local cobbler and ask them to put extended tips on them. That will extend the sole slightly while preventing the scuffing.
Next time you need heels ask for 15 iron. They are slightly thicker and last longer. Another option is to ask for JR heels. They also last longer.

It will keep happening. Bring them to a local cobbler and have them replace the liners. FYI...super glue is the worst cement/glue that you can use on leather. It seals it, dries it out and, makes the leather become brittle enough to crack.

They are used for two purposes. 1. To take up room when the heel is loose. 2. Often the counter (heel) liners wear out. Back liners are used to repair worn counter liners.
If you need to take up more room, bring your shoes to a local cobbler and have them install back liners.
Croc scales are round. Gator more squared.
