Agreed with heel taps. Tried them on... removed within 24 hours.
well, there are heel taps and heel taps. when done right, it's a great thing.
Hi all! Just got some new PTB's in 9. I normally wear 9.5 in most RL Italian shoes and went down 1/2 for these. They fit me perfectly. I then went into RL and tried on the Tassel Marlow in 9 and it was simply too large, tons of slippage. I had them order me the shoe in 8.5 hoping these will work when they arrive at the store. Two questions? 1) What size should I consider for the Marlow Penny? as I've not tried this shoe on yet and don't know what last is used.... 2) What is the full name for the Saphire Revo and where do I buy it, I'd like to use it instead of #8 cordovan, this shoes are more brownish.
BTW I have lousy feet from years of running abuse and need double soled shoes... these Marlows are a very nice wearing shoe for me:-). And now an obsession ...
A trio of Marlows:
I have had metal toe taps and topy applied to the sole of the wingtips. I'll get the PTB similarly done next week and then add them into the rotation. I'm still in two minds as to whether I should get both done to the PTBs or just the toe taps.
Any thoughts one way or the other?
Thanks for the information, fritzl. Based on this, I'll hold off applying topy to the other pairs but proceed with the toe taps. With regard to the pair that's already had the topy applied, should I leave it as it is or is it possible to get the topy removed (and is this something I should do)?
