Shifter wearing out the top side of my boot
I have this great pair of boots that I've been using for years. They are very comfortable. They have that broken-in feeling that only comes with age and use. They are all leather. I really only wear them when I'm on the bike, so other than the top side of the left boot, they look brand new. The shift lever is starting to wear a hole through the top side of ol' lefty from up-shifts. What do you guys do to protect the top side of your boots from that evil shift lever?
Back in my highschool days I used to work at a shoe store that sold steel-toed work boots. We sold a product that was a thick rubber toe protector that could be glued on to the toe of a boot to protect it from wearing through. Is there a similar product out there, but for where a shift lever would hit?
What do you guys do to protect your boots?
