Wear on the insides of shoes

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've been wearing a new pair of suede bucks and the inside by the heel is getting a little torn up already. They are a little wide, so there is a tiny bit of heel slidage. Is there any way to prevent the constant, slight rubbing from taking its toll on the inside of the heels of the shoes? Is there anything I can put on- a patch, etc.?

A picture is worth a thousand words. Can you post one?

Unfortunately, my camera was stolen, so I can't. But it looks like the leather is kind of rubbing against my heel in such a way that the lining could potentially rub off. Has anyone ever had this before? If so, how did you protect against it next time?

Just "spit balling" here but maybe if you provided the maker and shoe type/name, a forumite with particular knowledge of the maker/shoe may be able to provide some meaningful information.

I do have one pair of shoes that peeled in the back of the insole wall.
I used a liquid adheasive for leather to glue the leather back in place. It has slowed down the wear successfully. Your cobbler should sell adhesives or liquid cement in a tube, or for $5 or so can do it for you.

The patch is called a "Heel liner" and all the main shoe/foot care brands make them (Kiwi, Scholl's etc). Not sure without pics, but these may be for you. I needed to use these to break in some suede lined boat shoes that were abrading the backs of my heels and getting shiny.
