That's why you need to be able to wear a different pair each and every day of the year.

Howard on AAAC advises throwing out shoes when they need resoling.

Just checked my receipt - 145 pounds for new sole and heel, another 45 pounds for replacing buckle, doing a refinish on the shoes and international shipping.

Union Works starts at 15,700yen ($150) for a full resole for non-channel stitching. Channel stitched resoles start at 21,000 yen ($200).

These shoes are like any other high end item when it comes to maintenance: impossibly expensive and tedious. Magnify the tedium and expense when it's vintage luxury, e.g. cars.

Might anyone have an estimate of:

1) Top lift only?

2) Reheel only?

I emailed Edward Green but haven't received a reply just yet.

Allen-Edmonds charges its international customers $170 for a resole/reheel (includes shipping). Compared to that, Green's prices are not completely crazy.

Btw, how much do new EGs cost again exactly these days? And how much do John Lobb Prestige and C&J Handgrades cost? (Don't know the GBP figures.)

EG states that they offer full resole and heel replacement only.
