Proboots, can they be re-soled?

#1
As it says in the title really, can they?

I've a pair which are probably now the most comfortable boots I've ever worn (after the lovely Matterhorns that some git stole a few a years back) but the sole is now getting quite thin.

I'd hate to part with them and run the gauntlet of the local clothing stores 'just say no' department.

In a similar vein , my Hi-Tec Magnums. Comfy as feck, but the thread is kaput.

I wasn't sure if they could be as they have a trainer style sole rather than a footbed attached to a sole.

I reckon there may be one or two good cobblers in the Aldershot area....
Manor Park just down from the small bridge on the right. He did all my resoling. Tiny little shop, blink and you'll miss it.

I had my issue combat boots resoled with Vibram soles a couple of months ago. Extremely comfortable, shite in winter (they have no real depth to the grip) and surprisingly heavy.

My guess is that a reputable cobbler can pretty much resole anything.

The small bridge by Aldershot FC?

Drive through Aldershot so Princes Theatre is on your right and Queens on left. Follow road for 1/2 mile until you come to small roundabout. Turn left, down the hill, over small humpback bridge. Very small group of shops. He's on right(can't remember name).

No probs. Whatever you do though, do not use the cobblers in Princess Mead in Farnborough. He's pants. Soles came off my jungle boots in a matter of days.

I don't 'do' Farnborough, especially not Princess Mead (well apart from taking my daughter to Whizzy World). It makes Aldershot seem like a really nice place.

Nope don't think they can, I had a pair and the sole is rather like a pair of trainers ie built into the shoe rather than stitched onto the bottom of the shoe/boot. If you find out they can let me know as I would get mine done. great comfy boots but a sole like chocolate they don't last, shame!!
