You don't put Topys on full rubber soles and heels - they are already made of rubber! And the rubber is single unit made up of heel and sole. Have a look on the net, for Dainite soles, for an example. The same company make a much more heavy duty unit called Commando, too.
In your message, you said that you were going to buy new shoes - future tense. If you haven't bought them already, do consider the rubber soled and heel varieties. If you have bought them, already, it depends on what you paid for them and whether or not you can afford another pair. From the point of view of their being winter shoes, you need to consider if the uppers are fit for 'weather'.
I'm sorry to be a big gloomy but I hope this helps! Munky
I meant "getting" as in "they are being shipped to me".
I prefer to have Topy because it is the cheapest and safest method to resoling shoes. These are Blake stitched so repeatedly having the half-soles replaced will mess with the insoles of the shoes.
I don't like full rubber soles because the soles look bad and they cost more to resole than a Topy.
Thanks for the input though
