I love Half Cabs. They are perfect for my wide, hobbit - like feet. Anyway, I ride goofy and have a bad habit of wearing down the area on the ball of my lead foot way faster than the rest of the shoe. I tried many things to prevent / make this take longer and all failed. I then came up with an idea. Instead of waiting until I wore thru the sole to apply Shoe Goo, why not do it when I first get the shoe?. It would fill in the waffle sole and theoretically make the shoe way harder to wear thru because there is much more material to wear thru. I tried it and it has worked. The shoes are lasting much longer. All for the cost of a $ 5.00 tube of Shoe Goo ( works for about three shoes, two coats per shoe ).
