I'd be interested to see what your cobbler puts in as flush non-metal heel taps and how much they cost. Would you mind sharing?
well, i almost have metal ones. for the soft(er) versions there are a number of models. either ready made or rubber in various grades of abrasiveness. also teflon, which i never had. unfortunately, i only pictured the metal ones at the latest photo session. you'll get the idea.

i dunno, yet. i have quite a number of shoes. the oldest metal ones are from 1994(see first above). i expect the rubber ones to last 150 - 200 wearings. prices are rather equal.
