Still doing Rocky resoles!

5 years later folks are still sending us their beloved yet crumbling Rocky hunting and work boots! Vibram Middlebury Gumlite ($75) or Vibram Montagna soles ($85) are still the main choices. We can even do boots that are cemented versus traditional welted boots. $15-25 more expensive, but if the boots fit and work well for you, it may be worth it! Feel free to contact us through our website

Hammer Thrower Gets Regular Resoles!

Mickey Bitsko, or The Hammerman as we call him, has been a regular customer for a long time. He has been a competitive hammer thrower for a number of years and still competes currently at the Masters level. He also coached the throwing team at Cedarville University for 20ish years. The above picture shows him with his throwing hammer and his repair of choice: a hard smooth rubber resole on his hammer throwing shoes. These old dogs don't see a lot of walking, but they get "spun" on repeatedly, causing a hole at the ball of his very quickly. Now don't get me wrong, we have also patched the upper a number of times. There is a chance that the blue pair are from his college days (!!!).
This is what we do! Keeping things of value in use. Keeping the perfect shoe on your foot.

We have been working on English riding boots like crazy lately. Calf stretching, elastic and leather gussets, shortening shafts, replacing and repairing zippers, adding zippers, resoling. We have seen it all. We are glad to provide a good service to the riding community.  Excellent workmanship and great value at Xenia Shoe and Leather, Xenia, Ohio. Check us out on the web at

Replacement Footbeds for Super Birkis

Replacements cost $19.95 and we keep them in stock, as well as Profi Birki and Outdoor Clog Replacements.
