You can definitely get em without. I'm on the fence as to yes or no. It'lll make the toe lower profile, but other than that, theres no real benefit as far as i can tell
Got some wesco engineers soft toe and its perfect because the toe will flatten out nicely with age... But I'm just not yet convinced that the standard SD last will age as gracefully. Am about 90% sure ill get mine with celastic.
