The word "indestructible" is sometimes used to describe old Florsheims. This pair supports that idea. (Walking through fire is a new one though.) You can buy unworn or almost unworn pairs on eBay for less than the cost of a re-sole, it's true, but they won't have any history or character to them. These have both those things and I can understand the desire to keep them at any cost.
