Awesome work DWFII. Reeks of skill and pride.
The rubber part of the top lift is one piece designed to accept the clicked out leather piece. It is laminated on top of the rubber. That's why from time to time the leather may de-laminate and separate from the rubber.

DW, I've seen it done on a gemmed shoe with a good result, even they don't have the orignal last. What's wrong with you? I never said we couldn't do it. Fishball, back in April of 09 you PMed me requesting that I ship (New York to Hong Kong) you a few pair of Dainite soles and heels. You explained that you you...

[quote=Nick V.;3390186]Thanks.....I think? We do it every day. 360-270 on lasts, by hand, through the original holes. For the record, refering to another post, yes we are a high volume shop.

The problem is the cobbler screw up...
