New soles

Just a quick one today as I just got two pairs of shoes back from the shoe maker having put new soles on them. Can’t believe that this is the first time in my life I have done this. I’ve been walking around for years with cheap plastic soles. πŸ™‚ And what really strikes me: If you take care of the shoe and you’ll put on new soles more than once the whole thing is even less expensive than the stuff you get here. Must say I am really happy with my Loake’s!

    I personally am just plain walking too much, so most of my shoes get a “service” about once a year. I’ve recently even had high-quality Dutch shoes which started falling apart after half a year, a crying shame.

      Why not sending them back, Faunty? If it’s high-quality they’ll give you a replacement for sure.

      I’m wearing Lloyd-Shoes since many years… not much complaints… but if there’s something wrong I send them back… and always got an excellent service.

    I’m digging into the world of good shoes since one or two years or so. My favourite combination became shell cordovan longwings, flushed metal toe taps and very thin rubber or teflon toppys at the leather soles. The toe taps protect the toe and the toppy increases the life of the sole in wet conditions and is replaceable for little more than nothing. The cordovan leather is almost maintance free, just wipe and brush and add a bit of cordovan creams every few months.
