Do you shorten stiletto PU top heel pins before attaching?

Sometimes you have no choice especially the really small diameter tubes.

I concur. Don't like doing it but they seem often to be just a couple of mill longer than needs be. I think it it often just the pointy bit on the end that needs to be shortened. They seem to have got longer since I started shoe repairing in the 80's

i spoke to Philips' rubber about the pins being too long and they said they'd look into it.


That was over two years ago at the Cutting Edge exhibition ](*,)


You'd think it'd be in their interests to have shorter pins as they would save on the ever increasing cost of metals used.


Maybe start a petition, lol.
