Anyone know where to get a dainite resole on my Tricker's in San Francisco? I wore down one side prematurely stopping on my motorcycle. I guess I'll have to replace both soles early now.
namor, your cap-toes are looking good.
Thanks, the Indy toe stitching is cosmetic only so it won't hurt the boot if you break a couple stitches. I asked about that when I had regular Indys.
Here's some photos of my Unionmade grant last captoes. Daily motorcycle riding. Its pretty amazing actually how little damage there is from riding. If you click the photos for close ups you can see it better. I took these today after riding in the rain. I'm pretty sure I could polish out 90% of the scuffs in the photos. Maybe I'll do it later and post some before and after shots. Shell is some seriously resilient material.
