AwesOMe idea, I've been having this issue myself..

Motivated Seller

I had the same trouble, but fixed it without the use of a tire patch. I spread a few strategic dabs of Seam Grip on the underside of each toe. I placed them roughly where the sole would pinch the fabric as you would walk in the shoes.

Effectively I reinforced the fabric so it could handle the abrasion from walking. So far it's held up for two years worth of winter commuting.

You could also use roofing caulk for about half the price, but you end up with a lot left over.
