I use Resolene. The midsole and heel stack(all the way around) .I am a railroad machinist. I had two pair I ran into the ground in two years( alternated every other day) bottoms were completely trashed. I had both pairs rebuilt into casual wear boots. Back at round two at the RR and have two more pairs.Any recommendations for what to treat the edges of my midsoles and heel stacks with on boots used for work as a diesel mechanic? I’ve been using Resolene on my casual stuff and it holds up great, but it really takes a beating on my work boots. I’m wondering if I’m better off just treating the midsole with obenaufs? I’ve heard good and bad about doing that, but wasn’t sure. These boots see lots of wear and contact with oil, grease, coolant, water, and occasionally mud.
