So who uses toe protectors on double leather Alden .. C&J shoes and boots. I have some that I've sent to B. Nelson for recessed and some with just the cheap plastic type the local cobbler throws on. I am wondering if it is really worth all the fuss in the Long Run. I have some new boots and I might skip it this go around. What do you do if anything? Seems like they might make the toe turn up more than normal wear.
i do plastic on all mine, both back and front without any pro'lems. ill get metal through factory but i dont like sending them to nyc for toe plates alone
