My first shoes with Topy put on - Page 5

post #61 of 111
While I'm sure all you need to do is just install another topy, but if it came to it, would resoling be difficult/not possible after having sole guards?

I just had another pair of shoes done. This time I had my cobbler Topy my C&J Edgwares:





As you can see, you can't really tell a shoe has been Topied from the side.

My cobbler was originally going to dye the entire sole black to match the Topy, but I told him to leave the rest of the un-topied sole alone and not to dye it. Looks better this way I think instead of having the entire sole dyed black.

Question: I have a brand new pair of AE's. Should I wear them around for a bit to break them in and then get the Vibrams, or immediately apply them?

is there a significant difference between topy and vibram, or is one better than the other? benefits to getting a full sole or half sole?

It doesn't matter, the cobbler with prep the soles before applying the Topy anyway.

I think the actual Topy looks better then the Vibram. Which cobbler in the NYC uses actual Topy?

Nick, do you you Topy since on your website, you only mention Vibram.

Just curious, as with a variety of rubber/rubberized products out there in a multitude of colours, does not one of these companies produce a product that approximates the brown leather sole? I think what I find off putting (no offence Myke as your topy branded topies look better than Vibrams IMO) is that it is black. I'd topy my shoes if they were a brownish colour.

can't speak for topy.

vibram offer at least 50 different soles in different colours. mine are brown. perfect match...

thanks Fritzl! Yes I was lazy, should have searched it before posting. I just saw Furo's topy in this thread http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=159007 Much nicer!

I don't know about you guys, but I don't really care if the Topy is black or brown.

I mean, who is really gonna look at the soles/bottoms of my shoes? Some of you guys take it to a whole new level

We use Vibram.

Does anyone know of a place in the NYC that uses Topy? From now on, I think it's wise to have topys and metal toe taps.
