    The heels of my leather shoes I use outdoors tend to ruin pretty fast that brings the question if my shoes are appropriate for outdoor wearing.

    Is there a difference in the sole and heel structure, shape, and material between the indoors and outdoors leather shoes?

    Alann Flusser wrote about the difference in shape between the dress type and outdoors type in the chapter Tailored Ankle in his Dressing the Man book. However, I didn't really get what he meant.

    Just replace the rubber heel lifts regularly as needed.

    The lower part of my heels start to grind off intensely around the outer edges within a month.
