Frequently Asked Questions on Walking Boot Resoles

Is it worth having my walking boots resoled rather than throwing them away and buying new ones?
If you look after your walking boots, you can expect them to last a good 5 to 10 years. A worne out sole would not be reason enough to throw them away. Therefore, if your boots are still in good shape, resoling them is always a good idea.

When should I consider having my walking boots resoled?
When you begin to realise that the surface of the tread rubber is level and/or porous, and that the sole has lost its grip.

Is it possible to have just one walking boot repaired?
No, unfortunately not. We always recommend having both boots repaired, regardless of the state they are in. One of the main reasons for doing this is to ensure that both boots retain the same level of performance.

Is it possible to just have the toecap repaired?
It depends on the model of the boot and the composition of the rubber 'lug sole', generally made of either Polyurethan (PU), a high-resilience foam, or Ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA), a 'rubber like' material. Soles made of PUs are typically less flexible, they have a smooth shinier finish and are generally less sticky. Whereas, soles made of EVA are softer and stickier, lending themselves more easily to a successful repair job.
