Shoe Damage Report & Shoe P0rn Central - Part II - Page 1335

post #20011 of 20750

Light coat of wax, rub in swirls, add saliva, rub in, repeat several times. When shine starts to pop, lighten the pressure and keep rubbing. Finish with a buffing cloth. The Lobbs shine up very quickly, others require more work. Justin the shoe snob has a good tutorial on You Tube. Patience is a requirement.

jujujoo11, a cobbler shop with a good sewing machine or a shoemaker should be able to restitch the torn threads. If the soles have plenty of life remaining, there's no need to have the whole unit exchanged.

Hi guys, I'm wondering do I need to put trees into the shoes immediately aft
er wear? Because I used to do that and almost all of them go
t molds on the sock liner. No, my feet are healthy...

Guess that depends on where you live. The only time I had similar issue was when I lived in Taiwan. Though that's only after a rainy day, it's usually fine.

Even Dainite soles need replacing now and then.  Yours do: they're worn down to the depth of the stitching, and although it's only failed in one place, it will fail in others: you can see that the stitching is no longer recessed deeply all over the sole, so unprotected from direct wear.  Get them re-soled and enjoy.

This is simply how danite soles wear especially if you are heavy on your toes. If the sole is not separating and you have not worn it close to the welt it is probably fine for a lot more wear.
post #20017 of 20750
Mine has not split. But the thread stitching on the sole itself is showing wear. I know this isn't avoidable. But is it ok if the stitch little bit wears out?
post #20018 of 20750

If the stitches are in touch with teh ground and starting to wear, then it's OK until when - they break?  I guess with a Dainite sole, no other damage is done by wearing right through the stitches - replace the sole and that's that.  But with a leather sole, one you've worn right through the stitches, you might also have worn the sole right through to the welt at the edge, or the insole elsehwere, and that is definitely undesirable.  I would say if the stitches are starting to contact the ground, that's the time for a new sole.

^^^ You can wear the stiches down, it's nothing to worry about. As long as the glue holds everything together (which it usually do). When you're down close to the welt is when you should start to concern, and either do a resole or if the other parts of the sole is ok, you can have a cobbler attach a new toe piece.

Berry berry nice, not familiar with the Italigente brand but it certainly is going to add more temptations. :drool:
