Lulu Toe Plates

  • For new or barely-worn Goodyear welted soles only
  • Can be added to any of our full sole packages

Lulu Toe Plates are a popular addition to traditional leather-soled footwear, extending the longevity of the shoes by protecting against wear at the toes. We remove the foremost part of the sole’s bottom layer and screw in a metal plate in its place. The toe plate is flush with both the bottom of the leather sole and with the sides of the welt. It is not seen unless looking directly at the sole.

McFarland’s Shoe Repair is a fifth-generation family business founded in the early 1900s. It is owned and operated by America’s Cobbler, Jim McFarland. Our customers love our work (see our Google reviews on our home page). McFarland’s received awards for craftsmanship from organizations throughout the world such as the Shoe Service Institute of America.
