    What does it mean to Relast a shoe?

    Question: When you say "relast" do you mean they reshape the upper to original? Answer: They put the shoe on its original last while they remove and repair the outsole. This is a movie of the process at Allen Edmonds. Will be very similar at Alden...

    Leather Soles on nice shoes: to protect or not to protect?

    I know there is a lot of discussion whether it's worth putting some sort of rubber protection on new leather shoes to protect the soles from wear and leather and increase the lifespan of the shoe, or just leaving the leather as-is. I have a couple of pair of new nice Brunos and Ferragamo...

    Adding a thin layer of rubber sole to leather-sole

    As a New England resident without a car, I've been finding the leather soled shoes a bit fragile. I started wearing my first few pairs of leather soled shoes - I love the fit, absorption, and weight, but it kills me to walk through pavement and wet weather. Coming home to find them beaten up, a...
