Has anyone sent boots back for the toe caps to be replaced?
At the point of having to replace the vamp, it seems you have to take the whole boot apart and so would essentially be rebuilding the boot.
Is it the same for the toe cap? Or can the toe cap be replaced with a resole while being significantly less expensive than just buying a new boot?
I would think to sew a new cap on, you would have to disassemble the boot. I would say it is less work than replacing the entire vamp, but I really have no idea. To be able to access the toe area to resew a cap on, you would need full access to the upper, not just part of the front sole removed. I mean if you took it to some local cobbler and said replace the toe cap and do as little deconstruction as possible, maybe he would do it, but White's wouldn't.
