Our point-toe shoes, like all of our shoes, are made of authentic, very high quality leather. Unlike synthetic materials, this leather will naturally show wear. In order to preserve your point toes, we suggest bringing them to your cobbler before their first wear. (Some shoe aficionados like to do this for all shoe types.) Everyone walks a bit differently, and your cobbler can help best protect your shoes from everyday wear. If you plan on walking in your point toes often, we suggest having a cobbler place rubber tabs on the toe tips.
