    Hello everyone,

    I've been on the forum for some time, learned a lot! Unfortunately, I've stumbled on a problem so would need your knowledge to resolve it.

    I've bought these Van Bommel shoes years ago... Back then, I wasn't interested in classic elegance etc. These were my first good shoes, although I've had no clue what I'm actually buying! Eventually, I feel that my decision was right and comfortability of this pair is still unbeatable. After leather sole wore off I put rubber half soles. Everything was fine till now. I see that the sole is coming off. I'm wondering if I should replace the whole sole? Coming back to leather one would be great, but as far as I know only goodyear welted shoes are worth such procedure. Am I right? Are these goodyear welted?

    When I looked inside gap between soles broken threads can be seen. So that's what is causing the problem Thank you for any help.

    Take them to the cobbler you are over thinking this.
