Happy New Year, boys! Thanks Mike for the great first posts. This is one of my fave threads on here because many of you are responsive to questions, post some great shoe parn, are ready to give praise, and give some great tips about our footwear. An example, someone recently mentioned that Aram can swap out the metal shank for a wood one on request. Thanks! I plan to take advantage of this on my first resole. I have been blessed to acquire some rare shell in the 2015 and hope this continues this year.
