    Seconded. I had a similar issue with a pair of Galways and Edward Green suggested doing it myself or taking it to a local cobbler to fix as it was so minor.

    Absolutely amazing! Please give us a bit more information on their history. Are you the 1st owner, or were they you fathers, grandfathers or none of the above? Don't mean to be nosy, we just don't often see 70 year old boots in action on here.. :slayer: :worship:

    I must have misread the information somewhere by the sounds of it. I did call Burlington Arcade shop and the manager was very kind and asked me to post the shoes there and C&J will fix the issue and send them back to me. However considering that the issue is so minor and that it's only the glue that has come apart (the stitching is untouched) would it be better for me to fix the issue myself using a bit of Shoe Goo or some other recommended glue? Or should I not mess at all and send the shoes to C&J?

    ^ im unaware of the genesis of those posts but if the problem has to do with a channeled coming undone then yes, do it yourself with glue. its not worth the trouble of sending them away and waiting.

    its not a channeled sole Namor..

    i wouldn't glue it yourself...

    if you send it to C&J in the burlington arcade they may very well send it to a shoe repair near them that they trust.

    I would:

    A.) Take it to a good shoe repair that you trust and that you know is good

    B.) Ship it to the store and let them deal with it...

    Either should result in a good fix..

    It will probably cost you $10.00 to fix it at a shoe repair...

    So those bad boys raise the question as to whether C&J will do a triple sole today. Scotch grain Coniston on triple sole seems like a group MTO candidate. I know AS will do a triple. Or they have done very recently.
