Maiden voyage for my doak Chelsea's on the 82. I sure wasn't going to let a bit of rain spoil my fun.




Now harm, no foul. Come on guys. It's just rain. Do I really need to break out the defibrillators? Lol




I had a bit of a wait for toe-taps & "toppies" to be installed. We have a new guy in town that seems to be on the ball. I've used him a few times now & have been satisfied so far. He's a protégé from a gent in Geneve named Yohan Seror ( I would hazard a guess Andrei42 is probably familiar with the name).

Yes, all of them - I'm in the UK, and in the Midlands/North and it rains quite a lot. I also have a very good local shoe repairer - Shoehealer in Doncaster - so I'm happy my shoes aren't going to be ruined by a substandard repair.

I was against it for a long time...But I noticed how fast the sidewalks here eat up my soles... I'm walking hills quite a bit here in Lausanne. And Cobblestones eat my shoes for lunch. I don't know how fast you go through soles, but I think I've had to have had 10 pairs resoled since getting into the hobby 8 years ago or so. And other than the first year of getting into it, my rotation has been over 10 for the past 7 years and now stands well over 40. So it's not like I'm beating the hell out of my shoes on a daily basis either....and resoling by the guy I've been using is $220 a pop...So yeah.... I just gave in last month and started the toppies with the 2 pairs of Chelsea's I recently purchased.

 

The first pair I had with taps was a pair of Demi-Chasse Weston's that came with them. I was a true believer in taps after seeing the difference...Again with the cobblestones, but the tip of my sole always kicks off of those darn things...

I guess it makes sense in your case specially if you are walking a lot & dealing with hills & cobblestones. Or the gents above if it raining a lot. I just wear it house, car, work & back & just casual walking nothing too crazy. If it's extremely bad outside I just keep galoshes to protect my shoes. Other wise wear my other cheap shoes for regular activity.

Not a toppy guy at all. I just can't slap a piece of rubber on a beautiful leather sole....for me it's simply a matter of aesthetics if it's going to rain I just bust out the zugs or something with danite.
