ah i see, thanks for the tip! i'll look into that

I'm using the Sofsole ones right now. They were cheap, and easy to get (they sell them at Sports Authority).

Was it allowed to dry after use?

Looks like the foam separated. If there is some loose foam you may want to remove that before applying the glue.

FYI Gorilla glue expands as it cures - 3 to 4 times the amount applied. Be sure to weigh the pad down evenly to ensure it penetrates both surfaces.

I just purchased these Krause boots from unionmade's sale. The stitching on the uppers is coming off. I just got them yesterday and haven't worn them yet. Do you guys think I should return these?

If you are unhappy with them, then return them.

Bought 2 pair used boots which were in need of a little maintenance.

Anyone copped the McCleans from Nordstrom?

Opted for hiking soles stitched on the black pair but only glued on the brown. A little experiment.

 

One boot even needed a speedhook replaced. These really were a mess.

 

Cleaning, polishing and brushing. Finished with a layer of Sno-Seal baked in briefly at a very low temp in the oven.

 

Still not sure if I'll use the original laces (washed and waxed) or go with leather.

Stevenson's Shoe Clinic

714 Fort St, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

 

They did a great job and the cost was quite reasonable at $65 per pair. They even suggested brown soles, for the brown pair, ordering them in when I'd not thought past simply using black.

 

On the 1000 Miles themselves the deciding factor was fit. I plan to wear these lightweight unlined boots as I would plain toe shoes. Well, shoes for Vancouver Island.

 

Rescuing the two pairs of neglected used boots more than offset the cost of adding the soles. Lots of life left in them and a fun project ... to boot.

Well done on your clean-up and extending the life of the boots. Looks great!
