I was charged $180, but it is because I had them refinish the leather as well. There was a part of the boot that was getting really rough and looked like it was cracking. No amount of the method was able to fix it.This is my first pair of shoes with Dainite soles, so I don't know how they wear. I wanted Dainite because they are good for rain and light snow. I'll report back later this week as NYC is expecting some rain and possibly some snow.
