General lightweight rubber sole question. I have a pair of LGA's sure they are lightweight but everytime I wear them I can notice the wear mostly on the heel from am to pm. That is if I take a pic in the am wear them the day and then take a pic in the evening I can notice the days wear. This lightweight sole seems to wear fast on office carpet.
I sent a email to AE since I want to just get them resoled with double leather but I don't want the uppers refinished as the shoe is mostly new. So I wanted to see if they would do the conversion and at what price since this sole wears out crazy fast. I even told them just look at your own site reviews everyone notes how fast they wear out so please don't blame me also I don't have this issue with any of my leather sole shoes. I don't think I should be able to notice a days wear on mostly carpet in a single day.
Any of you convert this lightweight sole?
I own a few from that line, but only wear the LGAs. I haven't noticed how fast the soles wear but they are worn, at most, 2 or 3 times a month. Are you particularly tied to the pattern? The lighter weight uppers? The inserts?
As far as having them re-soled, I would spend the money elsewhere. I just feel like the leather is too cheap/thin, and shows wear too easily to bother with a recraft.
