Ah, yes, I can imagine that.

C&J and EG both indicate that they will not recraft your shoes if you'd had work done on them by another party. However they don't really specify what qualifies.

I think they won't recraft one that's been topy'd. Anyone know if they're OK with the nailed in rubber toe taps?

My 337 C&Js are showing significant wear, and from what I've heard you want to resole before you reach the welt (right?). If you don't for $220 I assume they'd repair the welt.

From researching the foot since I've had some problems on my heel, I've found that wearing down the posterior corner of the heel (as you claim above) in your shoe represents a "correct" wear pattern. People who wear down the center rear portion of their heel have an incorrect step that represents a problem in either the way they walk or the bone structure in their feet.

FYI, Nick V. at B. Nelson in NYC can do this now for $35. I think this may be a recent development, as I didn't see these available when I went in about six months ago to get a pair of shoes resoled. Below is an attached a pic of the Tramezza Nostros I just had done.

I am looking for a cobbler in the DC area who can do this. I showed the second picture at the following website and asked several shoe repair guys. They all said no.

Just ship your shoes to B. Nelson - I have done in the past and they did a FANTASTIC job.

Did you have to email them directly in order to inquire about this? I'm looking over their site and can't seem to find anything specifically related to toe taps.

Overpriced. They charge $50 plus shipping!!! B. Nelson is $35 plus shipping. B. Nelson has done 10 pairs of shoes for me (flush mounted toe taps) and I am quite happy with the results.

I use Embedded Toe Taps for asthetics. I rarely wear down my toes. I use Rubber Taps on my outer heels - which I wear down incredibly fast.

Sky Valet in DC did a good job. See the topy and sunken toe plate.
