No, you'd have a lot more money left.

On the edges, yes, on the toe, no, as they use a single piece of rubber wrapped from the sole onto and over the toe for the rand in that area.

I have a pair, which I utterly love but that is mainly because of the fact that they fit me better than any shoe I have ever tried, I'm rather indifferent when it comes to the no-edge stuff. They smear better than other shoes I've had this tight but they edge worse, so what you'd expect really.

How thick is the rubber over the toe? I love Miuras but toe rand that they are putting on them these days is paper thin and consequently wears out pretty quickly.

The rand over the toe itself is an extension of the sole, so it is as thick as the sole itself, 3mm. The rest of the rand is typical thin rand, just over 1mm, maybe?

Sounds good in terms of wear for us toe draggers. Sounds like it might be worth giving them a go.
