    did you get any other modifications done or just a straight resole from b.nelson?

    looks good

    Just as noted below:

    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.

    I just felt that the boot needed to be more balanced with a wider welt all the way around.

    thanks

    Sounds like a lot more than a re-sole. The welt that changed from 270 to 360 which means significant more work had to be added. A regular re-sole would be half that I think, plus shipping.

    Their website says a standard resole is $90 with shipping included. The complete resole package is $120 and includes trees and shipping. Here is the page:

    I'd love to see a higher quality picture of the resoling, if you're able to post one.
