I have a 2 years old DB in beeswax, now the crepe sole almost gone, should I resole it or just buy a new pair (since the price is kind of similar)?

the only difference is the sole right? so i guess the question is really why crepe over rubber?

the clarks crepe sole is awesome.  

 

i feel like if you've worn a pair of shoes with it you would know the answer...def check them out.

Out of the box the only real differences are that the leather is slightly different (on the Beeswax) and the crepe/rubber sole

 

I own the Bushacres and DBs and I love them both. I wear the Bushacres when it rains or snows because they don't slip n slide like the DB

most people would say resole because the leather has probably aged well and fit your foot well so why not continue its life with a resole.

i though they were both the same beeswax leather?

is there a way to shrink them?  i've bought 1/2 size larger than i should've , and it seems like they're getting wider and wider and longer?

 

if not, i guess i'll just wear them as is and get a 1/2 size smaller next time.

Shrinks shoes? Nah that's not possible, just put an insole inside.

And yes, crepe beeswax leather is different than bushacre beeswax, it's a lot better imo.

You can, but it's not common. And understandably so; I would never bother resoling a pair of DBs. It's not like they're $400 shoes we're talking about here. Worn out? Just get a new pair, as you've obviously gotten your money's worth out of them. Now, some people like to resole them with a Vibram Cristy sole as they dislike the crepe, but I'm not a fan of that, either.

I think I just like the idea behind it, seems less wasteful.

Did you have this done at the "official" place or at a local cobbler?
