I some how feel that double is more comfortable, more stable and balanced. May not look that sleek to the ones seeking sleekness ..

I did, but they make it in the way you see on the pics.

Obviously yes, I've sent a request what should I do to have a flushed taps, waiting for the reply.

Want to have it this way:

No, I didn't specify the thickness, because never ever had it in the shoes and have no idea how high it should be.

What I did with the low cost shoes - I used add a orthopedic inner-soles, that helps.

Now ordering the MTO I was able to told what I need - I asked for the medium support and they added. Try it, you will be pleased.

i remember a pair of cleverley bespoke where the screw went through the frame. it has been overlooked and fixed later. thickness might be a factor with the single sole.

also, the nailed ons can be replaced easily around the corner, without doing a worldwide search and sending your "babies" on a pilgrimage.

Vass'll do the screw-on taps on singles, but I've found no problems with the rubber tips instead of metal - maybe I'm OCD but   IMO the rubber looks better.  To my eye the flush metal taps don't look right with the leather-  mess with the line.

quite the opposite for me. i have them all(not vass) including the boulevard plates. at the end of the day for me it comes down to the purpose, which is protection.
they serve them all. fortunately, i'm obviously not OCD in this regard.

i threw in the term boulevard plate. in case somebody doesn't know them.

The arch support and actual footbed are one of the main reasons Vass work so well for me. Makes them feel one step away from well fitting sneakers in that regard.

exactly,

This is what I do, I dont use nails I peel it off and add a small drop of super glue on the sides and just stick it on. So far so good. Sometimes depending on my mood, I may use a small brass screw on the sides but I feel it is not required. I use the plastic kind btw.
