To the extent you can assign intent to a product, Hender Schemes are intended to be worn and to bare the marks of wear. Adding a sole could increase traction or durability, but will also change the profile a bit and may impede the break-in process some. Maybe wear them in and then see about adding a rubber sole. Toe taps would be overkill.View attachment 1570472
slouchy came in, in a nice little box. Super happy with the fit, a bit snug which is what I wanted. I'm in love!
Also, as a noob in shoes approaching any hint of formalness, especially leather shoes, any pointers on keeping these mint will be appreciated. Should I get them reinforced soles? any leather treatments? or should I just wear it and just embrace the wear and tear as it's already got a worn look?
I understand the instinct to preserve something that is expensive. But life is finite and you can’t take them with you.
