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.
