Segs & expensive shoes

I have got segs added to my work shoes and have seen the benefit.

What about shoes that I will not wear as often, it is worth doing and my other concern would be leaving marks on wood, etc flooring? When getting the shoes resoled, a sunked seg is possible but at the moment I am restricted to what the local clobber can do.

I had them installed on two pair of very fine oxfords. I found the metal tips an irritant - they made noise, they scratched the opposite shoe, they felt somehow 'off' - and eventually had them removed.

I put segs in the toe of all of my leather soled shoes - otherwise I wear the front down too quickly.

I don't have any problem with scratches, but I do tend to kick them out every so often...

The toes of my daily shoes do 'wear' out quick; however, for shoes not worn regularly, it is not an issue. For the latter, this is not only because of the amount of time I wear the shoes, but also the surfaces I walk on and how long the shoes are on.

Probably worth testing out.
