Just bought these Magnanni Monk Straps.

 


Its a beautiful shoe but the sole is bothering me.

I knew it had a rubber sole but now that I have it at home and am walking around in it...it just doesnt feel like a quality shoe, because the bottom feels almost like a stiff sneaker. I want it to have that stiff leather sound/feel that a sharp dress shoe should have (IMO).

 

I took it to a great cobbler in my neighborhood and he said he could replace it with a leather sole.

I realize I could be butchering the shoe if I do this.

Would run me $80.

 

Any thoughts?
