    nice boots. imo, you are not forced to do a full resole when the toe is worn down. a good cobbler builds up the front part and installs the flushed plates or just nails the standard plates on this basement. this a very common repair method.

    Doesn't need much care outside of lots of brushing--people recommend applying a thin layer of paste wax for polishing at most twice a year along with occasional Saphir Renouvateur.
    Gorgeous up front, gorgeous with age

    I don't think anyone around here has complained about any "bubbling" in a long time--are you referring to welts from rain?

    Thanks. A chat with Nick at Bnelson said this is what he does and I'll be sending the boots off very shortly. Unfortunately, unless I go bespoke, even my rubber soled boots wear at the toe harshly. I usually just nail in metal blakey's to the rubber soles, but for leather I'd like something more...civilised.

    If there were ever available again, they'd be an Instant Kop for me.
