Rubber bottoms are yet another protective addition to ones shoes that can help prolong the life of ones soles. In harsh weather environments, an affixed rubber bottom can be a life saver not only to your soles but also to yourself (in the case of slippery surfaces). It is simply cement attached and can be easily replaced and/or removed. And if you are one that walks a lot on pavement, having an affixed rubber sole will greatly minimize the sole replacement period.

For ultimate sole protection, add toe taps to your rubber bottoms.
If you stub your toes hard, the rubber bottoms can peel away. They are not invincible!
