@JjasonL Thanks for posting the images of the DIY half sole application and well done on a serviceable outcome. It will be interesting to see if there is any lift as they wear. I can see that the trimming could be tricky and not having access to a rotary buffer is a disadvantage. Purely a cosmetic issue, and one that will likely be a non-issue after a bit of wearing.

Inner city cobblers generally have higher costs, so their prices can be a little higher than out in the sticks.FWIW Here is a chap adding half soles to his 1Ks - http://halfsoles.com/how-to-glue-a-half-sole/ - and here he is repairing them a few months later - http://halfsoles.com/how-to-repair-a-half-sole/[Yes, I realise he used less glue on the right boot]Note the use of the original formula yellow barge cement, not the blue stuff.Cobblers will generally have access to...
That is craziness, from a business perspective and explains the high cost = labour intensive.
This sir, is a heavily used and restored Filson bag that was originally retailed sometime in the late 20th to early 21st century. While we do not have a full and detailed provenance for any individual bag, we feel confident that it was used to carry items such as clothes, books, laptop computers and the like. The modern upgrades, which include a YKK zipper and 'Made at Filson' label fully complement the original materials and do not detract from the functionality or the...
Measure your current bag. Determine what additional volume you require. Find Filson bag that meets your needs.
Seems like sold items drop to the bottom of the page. 4 sold so far.
You are after a contact adhesive. Barge Cement is one such product.. Please take photos as you do the work and post them, as it will be interesting to see how it goes and the results.
Kinda depends upon what sort of winter weather you are planning to use them in and what kind of a sole you are intending to put on.For me winter is basically rain with the occasional frost, for which a Topy'd 1K will be OK to wear in, assuming it doesn't get to badly drenched too often and the frosts not so deep as to cause you to slip. If you get some snow and ice a more aggressive, lugged vibram may be a more suitable choice. As you head towards more extreme conditions...
The properties of the two are given on the obenaufs website:http://www.obenaufs.com/leather-oil/leather-oil-1http://www.obenaufs.com/heavy-duty-lp/heavy-duty-lp-8-ozReading the above does seem to indicate that the oil is a lighter version of the LP.Only the LP is mentioned as repelling salt.The oil IMHO could potentially soften the leather more as it is more easily absorbed, but if you run that risk if you overtreat with just about anything, including coconut oil.
