    Thanks, @chogall. Do you know the turnaround time?

    Resole job of StC. I took a picture at recent trunk show. I remember Phillip told me this is the third resole.

    Pretty reasonable, not bad actually. Asked above, but do you have an idea as to how long the turn around time is?

    How long have you had them? and how often have they been worn? I am curious what the duration has been to get to a 3rd resole

    That's St. Crispins to do it, not Nick.

    So far mine have been lasting a year before resole. One goes out and another comes in.

    I seem to recall that you walk quite a bit, but how many pairs of shoes are you wearing in regular rotation? A year seems quick to me, but then my usage may differ significantly from yours.

    Hi. The shoes are not mine actually. I was told the pair was 12 year old.

    The actual turnaround time for my order was about 8 weeks,

    About seven pairs in rotation. Down a bit from what it used to be. But yeah, I walk a lot. At least a mile a day on pavement.


    It has varied for me. Once I got them back in 5 weeks, Che @Leffot just sent me an email minutes ago saying another pair is in and this took probably 8 or 9 weeks. I guess it depends on the time of year too. I would imagine summer vacation has an effect. Now, I have to drop off another pair that is getting a hole when I pick these up...

    Cheers - with 7 in rotation that must be a lot of walking for that frequency of resoling. No question you are getting your money's worth out of your shoes!

    Pay good money for them, might as well use them! I'll slowly accumulate more.

    I am quite surprised that you think a mile per day (on the streets) is a lot. My New York definition for "a lot" is much more than that.

    I was comparing to people that live, like, not in New York. Like I said "at least". I probably do about 3 on average a day.
