also holy crap these things are gorgeous, any idea who makes them? made in spain -- my only guess based on high-end manufacturers in spain would be carmina..

 

I would recommend it.

So are you guys saying I should topy my Guidis and MMMs? Because if so, I should definitely do that before I put any more wear onto those soles

I think in general you should topy mmm and guidi both to protect against wear and maybe water/snow. But the cobbler typically shaves off a bit of the sole before putting on the topy anyways, so you can wear it a bit (but not too much) before adding it. Some people like to say 'topied/vibrammed from day 1' but I don't think that's a big deal.

Topy increases the longevity A LOT, atleast when you're dealing with shitty weather (ie swedish winter)

It's just common sense. Would you rather replace a $50 piece of rubber when it wears down or your $800 boots/shoes...
post #91854 of 109053
i dont understand topy, is it something taht is added on to the heel to prevent it from wearing out?

Also I regret not bidding on this (no cash tho frown.gif )

post #91855 of 109053
No, it's more of a rubber sole covering. Increases traction for leather soles and longetivity
post #91856 of 109053

When I got mine topied, they did the front but not the heel.  I'm assuming because you can just get the heel replaced.

 

Also thanks for the advice re: ID bracelet.  Worked perfectly.

How far along wear-wise can you still put on a topy / when is it too late?
