Challenge: Accepted and Accomplished!

Peeled off the boot bumper, cleaned up the leather, sewed new welt onto both toes, replaced the Supersole 2.0 bottoms, and shined them up with some Kiwi Cordovan and I am not ashamed to say it, THEY LOK AMAZING! This job cost $88 which is STILL less than half the price of replacing them!. Totally worth it.

Challenge: Major Campfire Toe Melt!

Maybe you've been here before: Kicking back on a cool night in front of a crackling fire, hanging out with some friends, maybe looking up at the stars, maybe enjoying a beverage, MAYBE not noticing that your shoes have OVERheated  just a bit! That's what happened here.! $200+ Red Wing boots with plastic Boot Bumpers attached to the toes, all quite melted! Notice the leaves embedded in the melted rubber!

Our Task: Get things as close to original as possible. Stay tuned for the results.
