Interesting.... here in the US it’s almost as expensive to put replacement soles on shoes and boots as it is to buy a new pair. Shoe repair places are slowly disappearing. ( not hijacking the thread , just making an observation)
PS ...How’s it going Ties!!
Burt,

a real artist in the US is "Brian the Bootmaker" http://www.roleclub.com/instagram/

Check his blog with videos of recent resole jobs http://www.roleclub.com/blog/

There is another forum called Denimbro, where you can find his work. But yes, these guys are specialists and their work is getting more and more expensive....on the other hand, you wouldn't be satisfied with a piece of rubber glued under your boot by "the guy at the corner", would you?

I used to wear Docs, 1460's, and another more mountain style boot of theirs but had back issues, so have had to go flat soles.

Vivobarefoots are my mainstay at the moment, so far closest I can get to a boot With flat soles. Super comfy and light

Don't shoot Steve, pics to come when I get home in a few days...

If I posted pics of every pair of boots I owned we’d be here all day. Walker engineer boots, bought originally in London in 1988 (not by me). Steel toecaps.

Red Wing work boots. Picked up cheap on Ebay, have been there and done it. Must have been worn by a metal shop worker as I picked loads of shards of metal out of the soles.

My daily wearers, Wolverine Apprentice boots. Now with Red Wing replacement soles.

Thanks for the info.
Regarding the Perry, I moved it on about a year ago as I had lost some weight and found that I fit into a 46 a little better. It was a great jacket.
Good to renew contact with you.
Cheers
Burt

It's quite late so pics will have to wait Steve, sorry but for me it's 3 x Redwings in winter months but come summer it's Clarks chukka boots or with chinos and A2 it'll be vintage Bass Weejun penny's (US made, not cheaper modern ones!), or sometimes Timberland decks.
