A competent cobbler will remove "heel grips" and apply a "back liner". This is a tin piece of leather that will remedy 2 different problems. 1. When the counter liner wears out it's covered by a back liner. 2. If the heel is a bit to loose, it's just enough to take up some room without changing the fit of the upper or feel of the shoe. Back liners should be cemented and stitched on.
