    Do you guys suggest simple plastic heel and toe taps for new LWB Color 8?

    That sole is like a brick.

    Thank you. I'll probably wear them more in the fall and winter, but I figured I should wear them a bit before the summer heat.

    +1, and if you want, wear them on carpet only for the first few wearings so that the sole breaks in a bit before worn on pavement. I think this is only really necessary for leather soles, and even then some may find it excessive.

    Really? I feel like i'd be wearing tennis rackets on my feet. No flex and the toe would wear hard for a cpl weeks.

    Too much Horween shell was wasted on the Duckie Brown x Florsheim collaboration.

    I've had both installed on double-soled shoes (975 and Officer Indy) ... and by the time the taps wear or fall off, the soles are broken in (i.e., I don't bother replacing the taps at that point).

    I've not needed any taps for the single-soled 9016.
