You'll save money in the long-run if you wear through toe straps quickly. I bought a few sets of new straps after realizing it'd make sense to buy a good pair just once and be done with it.

Plus there's the extra insurance and piece of mind. If a toe strap fails, it'll be at the worst possible time: when you're putting lots of stress on it - skidding or just pulling up really hard accelerating or climbing. And you can imagine how much that will suck. I've never had one fail on me personally, but not something I'm willing to risk.

Long story short: if you ride brake-less or have a habit of pulling up on them hard while pedaling - you know, what they were designed for - they're worth it.
