An alternative would be hoof boots. They work great for some horses and riders.
Why are you shoeing your horse? Is it lame walking around where it lives or lame on trail rides/working? If the foot is just chipping, have the farrier roll the edges of the wall more strongly and have them show you how to touch up the roll with a rasp in between trimming appointments. Thee is no need to shoe a sound horse that can perform his job barefoot just because of superficial chips. If they are big chips, you are probably going too long in between trims and the foot is self trimming.
