My experience with titanium shoes was that they did not last as long as
steel shoes.  At the time I tried them we were training on rocky trails and
gravel logging roads.  I also noticed that they didn't grip as well as the
steel shoes and tended to give more slippage to each foot fall.  Doubt that
was a very good thing and it certainly made me feel a bit insecure, even on
a catty horse.  So after about 3 weeks of training and one desert ride
either a 50 or an 80, not sure which now,  they were thin and I had them
replaced with steel shoes.  Just my experience with titanium, leaving me
with the opinion that they are not what they are advertised to be, at least
on gravel and rock. . . maybe on sand or soft footing they'd be OK.
