Leather Sole Care/Life Expectancy, Hole in my boots' sole. - Page 3

post #31 of 33
Thread Starter 
As a poor American student, sending them back to the UK to get resoled in the same manner seems hugely impractical. After 100 dollars and with the prospect that this might happen again, I would consider just giving up on them at that point.

What are the disadvantages of a rubber half sole?

I would like also to thank everyone here for helping me.

To me it looks like the soles took some water damage and weren't allowed to dry out before they went out again. They're not defective in any way, you just must be very heavy on your feet.

ii. Annoyed wife of customer, who could not understand why the shoes needed a resole after 6 months. He wore the shoes everyday, did not use shoe-trees and the shoes were rarely polished.
Nathan Brown (Lodger Footwear) told me a similar story; one of friend's wore his Lodger shoes everyday and was harsh on his shoes too, the shoes did not last six months before a resole was needed.
Should you return them? If you want, but do not expect a refund
Resole the shoes? Yes and get shoe-trees


  did not use shoe-trees and the shoes were rarely polished.

 

None of that would have any bearing on the soles
