I’m going to be contrary and say it’s silly. It has some appeal (leather is always nice, and doing your own pads by hand has it’s appeal too), but leather’s going to wear when it gets rubbed, and it’s going to look ugly at the end. Also, you’re probably going to glue them on, and I’ve been burned too many times by devices like that that are supposed to either add friction or prevent sliding and are adhered by glue. I try to go with, at the very least, those cheap nylon pads with the tack through them, (which tend to snap in half, rather than come off via the tack) and preferably a rubber or other material pad with a screw through it.

Just my contrary two cents into the mix.
