A new sole job by Saint Crispin.

 

Close up.  A new sole turns out to be half sole, and its pegged instead of nailed.

Were you informed of the options? 

 

Form the pictures, it looks like they did channel-stitch the half soles on and the pegs were used to stabilize the edges.  ??

chogall - How long did it take to get your shoes returned? I saw your request for information a few days ago. Looks like you got your answer.

About 3 months.  Recommended half sole by SC.  Just wanted to compare experiences.

How much wear did you have on shoe before it needed resole?

Care to share the cost of resoling? If I recall it's somewhere <$200?

I don't know how true this is, but I noticed while looking at a cross section of a st. crispin shoe the sole seemed very thick. I'm curious if there are different outsole widths available. I am guessing there are, but I generally burn through soles pretty quickly and these seem to be holding up well.

Also, something that might be attributable to their seemingly long life (for me) is the fact that they seem to be very balanced. For example they are wearing very evenly across the sole. It might have something to do with the fact that they are hand welted to a thicker insole than a goodyear shoe so your feet don't cause as much distortion on the outsole at pressure points and such.

Not the best cross section but the only one I took from a trunk show 2 years ago.
