I sent 2 pairs into B Nelson and they did a pretty good job on the soles on one, but I had a heel start coming off while on business travel on the other pair and this was a serious inconvenience that I doubt I'll ever use them again. I was also disappointed in the lack of shoe shine on both pairs which were cordovan. They appeared to have hit them with a brush and not much more. I paid top dollar for the best material options they had available. So I'm looking at other options.
