Further Information
Further Information
  • Complete set (2 heel plates, 2 toe plates, 10 toe screws and 12 heel nails)
  • Includes all fixing nails/screws
  • Cast iron
These classic cast iron heel and toe plates are still manufactured in a cast iron foundry in Leeds where they have been made for over 100 years.
Putting plates on the soles of your shoes or boots will greatly prolong their life. And if you're after that 'drill sergeant click' or the 'crunch' of a marching regiment then these won't disappoint.
Fixing couldn't be easier. Simply place the heel plate over the area to be protected and tap each nail home with two or three sharp blows from a hammer. The toe plates use shorter screws to securely fix in place. Ideal for brogues, ammo and drill boots.
Includes everything you need to add plates to one pair of boots. You get 2 heel plates, 2 toe plates and the right number of nails and screws for fixing.
Choose the appropriate size based on the following (dimensions refer to the length of the heel plate from the top of the curve to bottom ends):
Small = 2 7/8" (appropriate for UK size 5-6)
Medium = 3" (appropriate for UK size 7-8)
Large = 3 1/8" (appropriate for UK size 9-10)
XL = 3 1/4" (appropriate for UK size 11+)
The approx width at the widest point for small and medium heel plates is 7cm, and for large and XL it is 7.5cm
Caution should be exercised when walking with heel and toe plates on smooth hard surfaces. Not suitable for soles with air pockets, e.g. Dr Martens.
Q & A's
Q & A's
Q: What do the inch measurements refer to?
A: It is the overall length of the heel plate, i.e. the vertical measurement from the top centre of the plate to the very bottom.
Q: how long are the nails because i would like to fit these plates to my RAF parade shoes but i not sure if the nails would be too long
A: The heel nails are approximately 22mm long.
Q: can you supply the nails i need about 24
A: We don't sell the nails on their own I'm afraid, only as a set with the heel and toe plates.
Reviews (any views expressed are solely those of the reviewer)
Excellent product but.....
I bought this product in anticipation of receiving my Scottish military brogues (size nine) so ordered size nine blakeys, toe plates were fine but the heel plates were gigantic compared to the shoe heel. when ordering make sure you measure the width of the actual heel rather than go by the shoe sizes given, these are probably for ammo boots. I need to order a new set now. Lesson learned :)
Pros: none
Cons: none
