Very nice. How about a pic of the outsole? Thanks.

It is not the exact same shoe, but a pic of Vass sole with sunken rubber toe tap nevertheless.

I was most interested in seeing the sunken rubber toe tap. Thanks.

Wow, that sunken toe tap looks great. Ordering that for sure moving forward. Thanks!

What are the benefits of using a sunken rubber toe tap? Does it last longer than a regular sole? 

 

I'm assuming it gives you more traction?

For starters a lot less noise on hard surfaces than the metal toe taps. Compared to nothing? Yes, it takes longer to wear down than leather - though people have strong viewpoints as to how much longer and possible negatives.

Choice is good and no question you should get the shoes trimmed out just the way you want them.  I will point out that I don't find my metal toe taps noisy at all.  Metal HEEL plates make a huge racket (I'm never doing that again) but the toe taps are all but silent.  Not good for hardwood floors, though, which is one practical reason that one might select rubber.

I have a gait that is hard on the toe area. For me, the rubber tap is substantially more hardwearing. I often have them installed also when the leather on the toe area is worn but the rest of the sole has pleanty of milage to go when I buy RTW.
