I’ve noticed recently that my Allen Edmonds have softer toe caps with little to no reinforcing. This is on my McAllisters and my Bartletts. However, I have noticed that my Meermin’s, Cheaneys, and Herrings by Cheaney all are reinforced. Is one preferable to the other for shoe life, is it just a matter of style, or is one inferior to the other. Thanks in advance for the help!
