Bring them to a local cobbler and have them stitched on one side so they will stay centered. The stitch should be done on the seam so it won't be noticed. It should not be stitched in a way that will not interfere if you need to change the laces in the future. __________________ Nick V. www.bnelsonshoes.com
Try this: Insert shoe trees. Apply "Water and Stain Remover". This can be found at a local repair shop. If you can't find it try a 50/50 mixture of white vinegar and water. Use liberally over the entire shoe. Let dry. Repeat process if necessary. Apply a coat of "Water and Stain Protector". Let dry. Condition and polish. Set edges with sole and heel dressing.
Just wanted to wish you and your families a very happy Thanksgiving.

Here is the flap opened in a bespoke shoe to take...
Just because the stitches are visible does not mean the soles are done. There are a few reasons for this. 1. They are stitched with a lock stitch. That means each stitch is independent of itself. Just because you see worn stitching does not mean the sole stitching will unravel further around the welt. 2. "G's" are manufactured with a hidden stitch. The edge of the sole is shaved around the border of the shoe. The flap created is folded, the sole is than channeled and...
