    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.
