Quote:First of all, the clicking sound (loud as a gunshot on some surfaces) can be annoying. Second, on marble or other slick surfaces, the foot can slip embarrassingly, and sometimes painfully if you completely lose your balance. Â Third (not so common, but still), airport security people can entertain ... strange thoughts about such shoes. Â Explaining them can sometimes take a while. Â Fourth (and most important) I tend to wear out the toe quickly, too, but do so unevenly, especially on the right foot. Â To get the necessary coverage, I would, I'm told, require a much large piece of steel than is generally advised or comfortable. Â And the clicking would only get worse. I agree that the EG photos look great, which is why I was eager to try it. Â Not the thing for me, though. Â If the rubber solution doesn't work, I may nonetheless pledge allegiance to steel as the alternative to frequent, expensive resoling.
