    I decided to resole these boots because I wanted a wider welt and sole and the 360 degree look.

    $250.00 total
    included shipping both ways plus originally they started out with a 270 degree good year welt and mid sole finished in black w/ black stain and black sole stitching.
    They were converted to a 360 degree storm welt mid sole and JR leather sole. Custom antique edge stain, leaving the welts as wide as possible stitched in white. The heel base had to be replaced to acommodate the new welt design.
    Nick at B. Nelson shoes is amazing to work with with phenomenal service. This was my 4th pair he had done for me. Incredible job!

    Very nice. My #8 captoe boots with commando sole should arrive next week. Changing them to an antique edge is something to aspire to down the road. More pics please!
