Don't the red soles get scratched off when you walk in them?
How do you protect the red? or do you just watch them get destroyed

well.....with heels its probhably a good job to get the soles scratched otherwise you're more likely to slip over on them
thats why models scratch the bottoms of their shoes with keys before they go on the runway.

but if ur that bothered by it......go to a shoe person and get some rubber added onto the bottom

oh...i actually meant that the red painting(?) of the soles (not so much the heels) come off when you walk around.
I was wondering if there's a way to prevent that (other than walking on carpets all the time)

i second that...
i've worn out the heels of sooo many of my shoes now...but there's really no way around it (at least that i kno of...). if you have a cobbler put rubber on the bottom or some other sort of 'protection' it's still not your original red sole...well, it's there but it's covered. so if it's just for aesthetics...just leave it as it is, it happens to all of us... but if you're concerned about wearing out the sole, perhaps put something on the bottom

I think the bottom, where the ball of the foot is definetly going to get scratched up. My CL's are brown now under the ball of the foot, but the underneath instep and back of the heel are still red.

And when you walk, thats the part that shows anyhow, so it doesnt really matter.

no prob...i know what you mean though...it seems a shame that they would go to the trouble of making the sole red only for it to get destroyed when you wear them...but the heel still shows and that looks quite lovely...
if it's any consolation...

you could probably varnish them if you're that committed.
