I would be extremely happy with just a factory resole if it costs only 1/5 of the price of a brand new pair
I beg to differ. They offer these discounts to the general public, not targeted specifically at people who are looking to resole their shoes.Plus if the shoes need a resole, then I don't think they would fetch much on eBayPlus one of the reasons I opt for a resole is that it's more environmentally friendly
That is exactly why I agree with Zapasman that the shoemakers, especially high end ones, are charging too much for a resole, which is 1/3 to the cost of a brand new pair. As you point out, resoling a pair of Edward Greens shouldn't deviate too much from that for a pair of Alfred Sargent, but in fact it is around double (EG charges £205 vs AS's £126)I don't know how the shoemakers come up with the 1/3 rule but it seems excessive to me.
Oh, that rule applies to spectators with white only.
Nope. EG states the fitting in UK size, so these would be UK 10C, which are very narrow
Which model is it?
Can't believe they are still available
That's ridiculous. Why don't you email them?BTW, on my PC, the price shown is £310 and clearly stated as ex-VAT. Either they charge a handling fee for taking the VAT off, or differential pricing:
