Not quite right. You can have them sent from France if you purchase from Upper Shoes.

Good call

 

Damn - I've just seen the purple ones.

Hey all,

 

After significant saving, I'm about to pick up my first pair of C+J's this week, in NYC. Should I put taps on them or leave them as is? If so, should I get it done with the in-house cobbler? In my office, I do have someone who comes twice a week to shine shoes and is also able to put taps on for 3 dollars. Seems like a no brainer, but maybe I'm wrong.

I get taps put on all of my heels. It'll throw off the balance at first for you, but you'll get used to it. It beats re-heeling the shoes after every couple of months.

I actually haven't done that with any of my shoes but I am considering it for my next pairs.

I'd recommend B. Nelson on 55th between Lexington and 3rd for your taps. I use them for resoling and they've done an excellent job.


On a side note, does anyone own the C&J Wembleys? If so, thoughts?

heel or toe?

heel taps should definitly be installed flush, while toe isn't necessarily the case. if the shoe shine guy does flushed heel taps for three bucks it's a no brainer...

This thread is a good/bad influence. I am nearly sold on a pair of Audleys and a pair of Finsbury 2s. Looks like I'll need to head to NYC to see how they fit.

just heel taps I believe. What exactly is flush?

post #700 of 8171
Flush heel taps? That's interesting. I doubt they would be that cheap.

Fritzl means flush as in it doesn't add to the height of the heel where the tap is placed. If that is the case then you most likely don't need to get them done if that is what you want, as they will probably come like that unless you are getting rubber soled shoes.

I get non-flush heel taps added so that the rubber part of the heel doesn't wear away.

EDIT: I don't see the point of getting rubber ones or maybe we are talking about different things?

Most shoes already come with rubber inserts in the heels.
