Nick is right, I saw my cobbler do that also. Exactly like Nick said.

So those TOD's are shitty shoes?

Agreed. I'll probably never buy another pair of their driving mocs at any price. The rubber on my gas & brake pedals are sufficient enough for driving.

Thanks for the input everyone. I'll have to ask some of my neighborhood cobblers.

I'm sorry that some of you don't like the shoes. But I think they're quite nice.

all humour aside, if you are in new york go to Jim's on 59th between park n mad they are miracle workers...never added rubber to shoes but always had them resole my sneakers

Yes, but they won't be the same as OEM, so ask to see an example before you let the cobbler do his thing.

As I have already stated, I tried having this done, and wasted my money.
Without photos to prove it can be done successfully, no one can reccommend this.

I'm not trolling. It sounds to me like you took you rubber soled shoes to a cobbler, he did a shitty job and you are now bitter and therefore are suggesting that "no one can recommend this" because you had one bad experience. Am I wrong?
