U.S. offerings will be available shortly at: www.jeffery-west.us. Also, some limited styles...

Rather, the worn gore/elastic is carefully seperated from the liner and upper. A new piece is fitted then cemented and stitched into place. FYI......This process is not done on a flat...
Quote: Originally Posted by makewayhomer dumb question, but how do you know when it's time for a resole? It depends on your gait. Press down on the center of the sole with your thumb.
