I recently came across these nice shoes while thrifting. The problem is that the stitching on the sole seems to be disappearing (with usage over the years of course). These are Goodyear welted shoes and I'm wondering if that means I would have to resole them in the near future (if I buy them of course)?
Resoling costs quite a bit of money, so I'm trying to work out the price I'm willing to pay for these shoes.
Any help would be highly appreciated.
the heel needs a replacement for sure judging from this photo (the rubber part looks worn out)!! Now according to the sole itself it looks in ok condition having some life in it!
