    Guys,

    I have a question. I have an old pair of H404's in black. The rubber sole, a Biltrite, is coming off. I'd like to have a pair of Dainites put on there but they're certainly not cheap. B. Nelson does a great job, but they'll be $155! Any other suggestions for these? I'm not sure I wan't to fork over that much coin for a pair shoes I got off eBay for $55. I have a local cobbler who's great, by I haven't checked with him yet.

    Any ideas?

    Can/should I put a leather sole on these?

    All of your thoughts are appreciated!

    Why don't you throw a picture up here - I don't know what H404's are. Assuming you're not talking about the Kudu Indy's are you?

    • B. Nelson can do rubber (by Vibram) soles on goodyear welted shoes for $60 + s/h. (I'm gonna assume that yours are goodyear welted, since nearly all Alden shoes are)
    • Yes, you can put a leather sole if they are goodyear welted - a local cobbler can help you too.

    I most probably would go the Dainite route. But I like Dainite.
