IMO, it's never necessary to replace an entire wheel when only the hub has failed, although one might want to for other reasons.
i would first contact, by phone is best, shimano and ask if the shoes are available for a nexus 7 hub and go from there. the alternative, asking someone at an LBS for that type of information, has often been less than satisfactory. best to try to contact someone on the phone or a "chat" line.
BTW, i'm impressed anyone has put enough miles on a nexus 7 hub to really wear out the shoes. congratulations! i have to say that i would be wondering about how the shell is holding up...
