    I've had rubber half soles added on my blake 30 cropped jodhpurs which I wear as an everyday beater shoe. I had it done by Classic Shoe Repairs in London, who were recommended to me by the YSL Bond Street store, and who do the Bond Street store's re-soles etc. They also do a lot of work for other high end labels, and I have to say they did a great job (I've had rubber half soles added by other places before, but they made it look really sleek, and they're staying completely stuck whereas others have started peeling a little at the front with wear). Mine are holding up fantastically considering what I put them through, and I anticipate being able to replace the rubber half sole and heel at least once before a full re-sole. I tend to be hard on soles around the toe, so having the rubber added is a necessity for me, otherwise they'd hardly last five minutes.

    Ya, I brought them in one inch below the knee. If you buy the jeans from a SLP shop alterations are complimentary. The Tailor was concerned that they would be to slim but its perfect..they were a tad loose around the ankle on me. I will for sure be doing the same on the raw hems I have on order and the bikers when I pull the trigger next month.

    Wow that's awesome!
    How do those harness santiag fit? I'm looking to get my first pair of SLP boots. I usually wear a 39 in Balenciaga sneakers and they have a bit of room with dress socks.

    Sent mine to B Nelson. They heel balance and added a rubber heel (lopped off some of the leather layer to ensure heel height matches factory height) and they slapped on vibram half sole

    thanks, the bonus is they're both comfy and tough enough for city life.

    as for boot care, vibram. especially wyatts. the blake sole's pretty delicate. you'll end up having to resole the whole thing, which can mess up the shape of the shoe if the cobbler's not so experienced, otherwise. it can be quite a pain.

    and don't put leathers in a dust bag. just leave them somewhere cool, dark, and dry.
