I dropped off a pair of beater pebble grain longwings to a shoe repair shop to get the Vibram resole. $60 test to see if these guys are worth sending expensive shoes to I guess. Pretty sure they're just gluing them to the midsole, but whatever, we'll see.

How do you tell if they are doing it right or wrong? I've been having shoes done and have no idea what to look for.

My cobbler said they only make Vibram soles for boots. Then, after being shown some boat shoes from oak street or wherever, tried to tell me Vibram has a special deal with that high end shoe company, then after being shown several more brands with that sole, said Vibram must have special deals (and individual soles) for each. I finally found an old pic of shoreman and said, Here is an individual who took his shoes to a decent cobbler, at which point I was told Well, no one ever asks for this, just so you understand.

I'd say you're already ahead.

Yeah I got the "these are for boots" line too. They also asked if I wanted the soles dyed to a darker color. They do good topy jobs, so I'm testing the waters on something more complicated. I've never had Vibrams put on locally so I'll take relevant pics and write something up when I get them back next week.

Don't forget to show them pics of exactly what you want beforehand. biggrin.gif

FWIW even the guys who added vibrams to my florsheims dyed them just a little. They just couldn't help themselves.

Yeah, what I meant were details like lightening the midsole a bit etc.

Yep, you can buy dollars like that, for an outrageous amount.  Prices keep rising on everything and these new customs policies just get worse.

I went on holidays to Bariloche, a very beautiful city close to the Andes mountain range and it was full of foreigners, even fuller than previous years, and lots of them 20 something guys and girls. But of course, coming with dollars or euros you can stay for a whole month and visit many different cities or even go around the country. If I wanted to do that in europe I´d need to save so much.

^ I spent a few days in Bariloche a couple years ago. It was my favorite leg of a month-long South America trip. Great place. And yeah, money goes a lot farther there.

WOW that place looks just like Harzen in Germany.

I knew there was an area in southern Brazil that looked like that, but in Argentina.
