Shipment notice received, the latest pair are on the way.
A JR Resole at BNelson is $150. It's an additional $50-ish dollars if you want a hidden channel. Turnaround time is about 3 weeks.
Good option, as long as a refurbishment isn't really required.
I think that's probably reasonable.
But if a shoe is repaired/recrafted on an automated assembly line with machines that probably do the job in one-fifth of the time it would take to do it by human hand or in a shoe repair shop...
You see what I mean?
Yes, unfortunately I'm just unaware as to how much of this process in this case is automated and how much is manual labor.
Hmm...my size. Can I give an offer ?
What does this mean, exactly? And what misfortunes await those who topy?
Just checked what I paid for my refurbishment last autumn, at it was 195 pound plus shipping. Indeed, when I first inquired they quoted me a quite outrageous figure which included pick up from my own door step, but to save a bit I chose to ship them myself which worked out perfectly fine. The refurbishment included new soles, new welt and new insocks. All in all I was extremely happy with the result.
You can't just throw in the towel.
You can't just up and quit.
Where's your pride, more importantly where's your wallet man? LOL
Well, they advise against topying as somehow the glue and rubber from the topy will trap the moisture and thus degrade the soles quickly .. I think it's a two-edged sword regarding this ..
Also, EG may refuse to refurbish the shoes topyed by a local cobbler.
At $455, I'd likely just buy a new pair, especially considering the wait and hassle.
But if the shoes just need a re-sole I don't think I'd just toss them. I think BNelson would be a viable alternative.
I think I'll probably be OK considering I wear them once a week and they only see pavement from the car to the office and back, haha.
Too bad my friend, too bad
That's more like it.
If there's one thing I can't stand, it's a quitter. LOL
