Thanks. I think they lost a bit of their sprung toe with the resole, which is too bad. But otherwise, I consider it a great success.
Just got my Trench boots back from a resole.  They came with the flat leather sole (all that was available at the time), which I was never wild about, so even though they still had some life in them I decided after a year to resole them with Dainites.  Here is the result:     I like the way they look, and I've had Dainites in the past and am pretty certain I'll be happy with the feel.  Looking forward to dirtying up the new welt a bit...   BTW, these have spent a...
