This was one of my grandmother's tips. She used to wear ladies' flat lace up shoes, and always had an extra sole and heel put on each new pair before she started wearing them. She would then get them redone every time the extra sole and heel wore out, so the originals were never worn or damaged, and the shoes lasted much longer.
