What to do after Tod's Moccasin sole/rubber beads wear down...

Tod's moccasins are perhaps SG's favorite flats to run around town because they are just so very comfortable. I must say though, they are not perfect. After a time, little rubber beads on the bottom wear out, making these flats unwearable since there isn't a real sole on the bottom.Tod's shoes are so well made, even after years of wear, they are like the Energizer Bunny, still going except for the beads on the bottom.
I don't want to just throw them away since they cost quite a bit so this is my solution....
Just have your cobbler remove worn down beads and replace with rubber sole. Voila, these Tod's flats are good to go again. My cobbler charged me about $30.
