shifter boot guard

I have searched this on ebay and TT. No results. does anyone make a nice piece of rubber that I can sew onto my boots? my lever is starting to wear through my suede boots.

Never seen one mass produced, but I know what you're thinking...kinda like a toe cover for fastpitch softball pitchers cleat.....I'd check around for a cobbler or saddle repair shop that could do some custom work for you.

On the same note, take your shifter off and file any sharp edges it may have nice and smooth and round.....sounds like you have a sharp burr that's gnawing on your boot.

PS-suede riding boots? :ride:

I would glue some type of reinforcement patch to the area.

cut a m.c. inner tube section 2-3" long. slip it over your shoe to keep the shifter at bay. cheap fix. aj

Even quicker, piece of duct tape, replace as needed.

but,duck tape is so harsh on suede. let alone trying to colour coordinate. basic black is good for anytime of the day or year. please be aware , the fahion police are everywhere. remember , you are, as you dress . aj
