Raw is war man....

I prefer to topy... more of a practical man and slipping can be dangerous and not just embarrassing. Worn out topy can be replaced easily but resoling can be a big headache as not all makers will accept resoling, meaning you end up going to 3rd parties to resole and the result may not be good. Of course, for GYW shoes one can also argue that the filling will break down and will require a re-welt.
I am with arcfire on this generally. I usually wear the leather soles between 5-10 times before I topy..

Oak bark soles are really hardy though and I have yet to topy for this pair which I've worn probably over 20x.. but this is a good reminder that it is about time.
