    Thin topy was coming off (my repair guy made fun of it, too) so I put a mini-lug sole on my oiled brown dayton service boots. Pretty happy with the results.

    Very nice. Topy on mine wore out before they got to fully peel off (the tip was starting to come off) but I plan on wearing the leather sole out and then resole them with a white Christy soles.

    Yeah mine was coming off as well. My repair guy said that thin topsole that they put on in the factory is mainly for women's shoes. He found it funny they used such flimsy rubber, given the generally good build quality of the shoes.

    What makes me sad is that both the cobblers that I visited really liked the general construction level of the boots, but lamented on little 'human mistakes'.
    For example, my left shoe's upper is sewn a little tighter, maybe like 2mm in the back. Its been causing a lot of blisters on the heel and if it doesn't stretch out, I need to order a replacement boot. Sad because the right foot fit me like a glove now (started a little snug)

    Anyone know where I can get some rounded boot laces?

    Waxed or etc, what would be the best option? These will be my snow boots.

    Blazing, they had a large selection of flat, round, waxed, unwaxed and leather laces at the Quick Cobbler on cambie + 2nd when I was there a few months ago. Try giving them a call.

    Very much agree.

    I'll be getting that next time I replace my heel as well.


    How much did it cost you? More than a Topy?

    Thanks! Total was $50 at my local shop, which was likely a little high for a generic mini-lug sole job.
    I could have probably gotten lower if I shopped around.
    But they have done a number of $8 fixes, always very quick and kind, so didn't mind.

    Everyone in that first round of Dayton anniversary sale buying paid like $330.xx USD iirc. I'll put up a proper ad eventually, but what they look like shouldn't be any surprise. I couldn't find any of the flaws a lot of people encountered either.

    Probably going to post them for $250ish shipped in the US
