Leather-sole shoes and their care? My first question is : Should I take my new leather soles to shoe-shop to put rubber soles? My shoes have stitching through leather soles and although heal has a rubber pad the rest of the shoe sole is open to the elements. What is the rule of thumb on this? Should leather soles be always protected by rubber or can I slip and slide on leathers till a wear them out? Second question is unrelated to the first. I noticed a pretty big sale at Joseph A. Bank and I wonder what is this forum's overall opinion of this company? How is the quality of their: Suits, Shirts, Wool overcoats? Thank you folks.
