    I have the opportunity to choose whether or not I shall have steel inlays in the toes in my new shoes, but I wonder what the pros and cons are with it.

    Pro - If your gait leads to the very front of the sole getting worn down before the rest of the shoe, a steel toe-cap may slow the process down.

    Cons - You scratch wooden floors, and anything you rest your feet on. Grip at the toe is even worse than with plain leather.

    All in all, they have little to recommend themselves.
