Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I have a pair of Lowa boots i have had for a few years, uppers are fine but soles are wearing down, anyone have any tips on where to get them re-soled?

    I could get new boots but the ones i have are comfy and in decent nick!

    Thanks in advance.
  2. Altberg did both of mine and made a good job of it. They were reasonably priced and had about a week turnaround.

    Edited for sausage fingers/iPhone interface issues.
  3. And mine,(both of them,left and right) :)

    Seriously,Altberg made an excellent job.
  4. Lowa UK only recomend two outlets to do resole work:

    Footwear repairs
    To extend the life of your LOWA boots even further, Aaron Distribution Ltd recommend two companies (see below), that carry out a fully professional repair service, which includes the full replacement of the sole unit with the approved and genuine LOWA Vibram® tread. A full retread gives renewed grip and posture, and can double the life expectancy of your LOWA footwear. The replacement of rubber rand can also be undertaken.
