Chances approach certainty that the shoes above are GYW. So, all other things being equal, and you take care of them, 3 - 4 times might be reasonable. Also depends on who does it.I have another question that I can't see being definitively resolved on SF. I know that the rate at which you'd resole shoes varies too much to be predicted, but how many times can a shoe - like the one I bought - be resoled?
I'm leaning more and more toward only wearing these indoors at work, having seen some info online saying max is 2-3 and using leather soles outdoors can wear them down in as little as 6 months (something not new to me, but affects resoling).
If the shoes were HW, and the same conditions applied, the shoe might get 10 resoles or more. Of course, you might have more financial incentive to care for and be careful of a pair of HW shoes. But all shoes...leather...wear out eventually.
