thinking about getting my gucci, ysl, lv, and cl's sneakers topied or have some sort of covering. good idea or bad idea
I've never gotten sneakers topied because I simply do not trust the cobbler will do a good enough job. With dress shoes, it has a leather sole which the rubber adheres and glues on much better, they can also pound nails in there for extra toughness. With rubber soles, not so much. Plus if the topy is too thick, you'd probably notice it and look weird. There is a cobbler I would trust to do them, it's in NY iirc, you send them the shoes and they topy it for you and send them back. It's where most get their expensive shoes/boots like Carpe Diem, Augusta, MA+. etc... topied and everyone is always satisfied with their work.
