I find slipping happens to both leather or topy soles when walking on wet tiles or oily floors.
I go for topy all the time because my toe spring wears the front tip fast. Topy at least resolves that problem for me.
Agree on slippery factor.

Call me a cheapo but rubber is more long lasting and easier/cheaper to replace than a re-soling. I have yet to experience (touchwood) the part about topy compromising structural integrity of shoes, which is probably the biggest concern that will swing me against topy.

And last but not least, you are not alone. I think most people wear out the front tip and heel fastest. Those are the weakest links IMHO.
