I wear a pair of Vasque boots every day at work. (got em for $15 at REI, sweet)
I kneal on concrete floors and sometimes even crawl around crawlspaces in houses all day. The toe is wearing quickly.
Does anyone have a secret to protect the toe? Maybe a glue to spread on the leather.
Seam Grip comes to mind. As does Duco Cement. Maybe even superglue.

What's wrong with duct tape?
As charlie says, barge cement and leather works wonders. You should be able to get a patch of heavy leather at a craft store, then just apply shoe polish to get it near the right color so it doesn't look completely goofy.
