I don't think Coomb's or Brice's can replace the cork. They can do a leather half/full sole over the old cork. They may recommend instead of topy to remove the cork and do a rubber half sole, think a very thick topy. They may also be able to carve a leather outsole thicker so it replaces the cork's function. Tbh, I believe this problem is more to do with the nature of the GW than the cobbler's skill. They probably deal with this successfully all the time.
