    Nice E, you don't vibram the heel on the ma+? Only put a tap on?

    Yeah but I prefer to have it removed and replaced with vibram. The ma+ heel isn't very sturdy and seems like it will wear quite fast.

    I've looked around and seen some info, but how are you guys taking care of the sole? I have what looks like a rubber heel (tap?) but the front is completely exposed. I went out for a while and walked around on it but kept thinking if it was a good idea to get something on the front sole as well. I've seen some people talk about not worrying about covering the front part and that it ruins the aesthetic, but, I'd hate to damage the wooden sole or worst put enough pressure on it that it might crack (possible?)

    It's up to you, but I don't ever vibram the heels.

    Occasionally I'll do the sole, but trust me, it's fine to leave as is.

    The first 20 wears or so it'll seem like it's wearing down really fast and you'll get a bit worried about it. After that, it kinda doesn't change for a good 2 years of wear, and at that stage you can just get them re-soled. Re-soling costs about $100 and there are SF-recommended cobblers who'll do an excellent job, just as good if not better than the originals.

    Of course, if you vibram you'll likely not have to get them re-soled, but you will eventually have to get them re-vibrammed. So it kinda defeats the purpose IMO.

    maybe it's just me, but i find it much more comfortable to walk around on soles without vibrams
