They either look like they take a real beating or just take constant repair and attention and probably have a whole staff to make repairs. Especially when its weddings and formal events every woman is in high heels and guys are in hard-sole dress shoes. I've gotten onto my husband about the damage his dress shoes do to our floor and should take them off.
I think that for most owners of all the authentic look of wood is more important than the risk that the floor will get damaged in the future.
The latter will certainly have made a deep impression on him
